Costa Rica's Tarpon Fishing Lodge on the Caribbean.

We are located on Costa Rica’s Caribbean side down, right by the Panama border. Ideally set to offer our guests some of the best Tarpon fly fishing but also bird watching for quetzals, hummingbirds and many other rare species found no where else. 

You can also see howler monkeys when they come down from the forest canopy during their mating season or even see a sloth hanging from a tree branch while hiking on your way to your fly fishing spot. Not to mention some of Costs Rica’s best snorkeling experiences. Hence, if you’re looking for an amazing getaway, look no further than Costa Rica. We have it all where it comes to some of Costa Rica’s lesser pressured beaches and fishing waters.


Our's is the only lodge located within Costa Rica's Manzanillo/Gandoca Wildlife Refuge. Hence our guests are left at the entrance gate to walk three blocks or so within the wildlife sanctuary to get to the lodge. We have a guide escort you to your accommodations 🦋


Howler monkeys, sloths, a ridiculous number of bird species, and other wildlife can all be viewed from your front porch in the mornings and evenings. You’ll never have to worry about what to eat when you stay at the lodge. Because all meals will be prepared by local cooks, and the menu will include such items as snapper, local fruits and vegetables, and other local delicacies. Packages include a daily happy hour which include rum bar and beer. We do offer cocktails at additional charge…
