This is one destination that Wes continues to visit annually.

Golfito, Costa Rica

We can accommodate a total of 32 guests. Daily laundry service is provided, the bar is open, the food is prepared fresh each meal and meals are buffet style with plenty of selection for any diet. Dress is very casual; shorts, t-shirts and sandals are accepted in the dining and bar area.

Bottom line, you travel here to catch fish and relax. Fly fishermen are welcome and we will compare our Billfish hook ups with any lodge in the business. Obviously, this is a perfect family, couples, friends or group destination.

Golfito, Costa Rica

The fishing is great and offers over 20 species of fish to challenge you. However, the most common caught are Sailfish, Marlin, Roosterfish, Snapper, Dorado, Tuna, Jack Revell, Amberjack, Grouper, Snook and Corvina. Non-fishing guests always enjoy relaxing on the beach in front of the lodge or soaking up some sun around the pool. We have several other activities available that can be arranged to keep those of you who don’t want to fish entertained: Jungle boat cruises, horseback riding, hiking, botanical gardens, snorkeling, kayaking, bicycling and limited shopping in the local village.
