The small cabanas you stay in are located over the water with spectacular views looking east toward the barrier reef. They do have kayaks available and will set them up... More

Tarpon Caye was the best fishing experience of my life I will be coming back this December and for the rest of my life. I am 13 and I caught my first tarpon there thanks to Mr. Leslie and our assistant Carlos. Mr. Leslie is the most knowledgeable fly fishermen I've ever met. I came to Tarpon Caye with a... More

Just back from Tarpon Caye Resort…actually spent 14 some days on the island. - First and foremost this is a fishing camp…Fishing is the number one focus of Tarpon Caye…maybe a day or two relaxing would be fine but amenities are certainly not “resort” like. This might change but for now fish, fish, fish. Permit are the major target. You... More

I organized and hosted a group of 8 anglers for a 4 night/3 day trip to Tarpon Caye in March. This trip was everything we expected it to be. Tarpon Caye did a great job ushering our group through airplane tranfers in Belize City and Placencia. The staff was very friendly and helpful, which is important when they were the... More

I have been to Tarpon Caye Lodge 5 times now. I keep coming back for the overall experience. It is not a five star resort and doesn't claim to be. It is a very unique experience out in the Caribbean on a small gorgeous island. My passion is fishing. This time I finally caught my grand slam, a permit, a... More
