The lodge is open mid-January through May and mid-August through November, but we recommend the months of March-June for tarpon and September-November for a combination of tarpon and snook.


It is here on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica that enormous schools of marauding tarpon search to satisfy their endless appetite. Casting a lure or fly into a school of feeding tarpon is just the start of one of the greatest experiences an angler can have. Costa Rica has long been famous as one of the best tarpon fishing locations on the planet and our lodge here is ideally located in the very best area of that country. Situated near the mouth of a large river, this lodge not only produces superb tarpon fishing, but it's also home to some truly exceptional snook fishing. In fact, over the years this lodge has produced four (4) IGFA World Records for snook. There is also the option of venturing just a few miles offshore, where you can fish a pristine reef for wahoo, tuna, Jack crevalle, snapper, King mackerel and even sailfish. Each day you will join your captain/guide aboard one of the lodge's custom built, 21' center console boats, for an exciting saltwater angling adventure.

And while this world class angling adventure is in a remote location, you won't be roughing it. The lodge is very comfortable and well appointed, with guestrooms and private baths for each two anglers, as well as a pool and Jacuzzi. gourmet quality meals featuring fresh seafood and meats are complemented by a good variety of local vegetables and fruits. After a dip in the pool and a soak in the Jacuzzi to soothe muscles sore from fighting big fish, you can relax with cocktails and appetizers on the veranda or at the open bar. All inclusive trips to this world class angling destination are very affordable and offer a great opportunity to realize your tarpon fishing dreams.
