Costa Rica Fishing Lodge & Nature Retreat 

Located just south of the amazing Tortugero National Park, Jungle Tarpon Lodge sits on the Caribbean shore of Costa Rica, and offers it's guests world class sport fishing and nature in equal abundance.  All this, in an awe inspiring, roadless wilderness.  Jungle Tarpon Lodge is a totally unique Sport fishing and Adventure destination, specializing in intimate groups of anglers and adventure travelers.

 

World Class Trophy Tarpon Fishing

Our sport fishing anglers depart each day targeting (and usually intercepting) full size Trophy Tarpon averaging over 60 pounds, plus marauding Snook (the world record was taken less than a mile from the lodge) and many more.  Fly fishing and spin fishing are both effective ways of taking (and releasing, of course) these fine fish.  We may keep a tasty Snook or Tuna to enjoy for dinner with local fruits and vegetables harvested from our own property, but otherwise we practice strictly Catch and Release with our resident species.  

Wildlife Viewing & Nature Adventures

The non fishermen in the crowd won't miss out...they'll explore our very own turtle nesting beach, motorboat up a few of the secluded nearby rivers to photograph crocodiles, sloths, white faced and howler monkeys and a myriad of fantastic and exotic birds that the jungle  literally teems with at times.  Extended trips included canopy tours, whitewater rafting, cultural touring and a tour to an incredible active volcanoe.  

In the evenings or after lunch, sit under the tile roof of your room and listen to the Howler Monkeys jump from tree to tree and sing to you…or sit in the village cantina and watch the local teams fight it out on the next-door soccer pitch... or simply wander the beach and village taking in the incredible remote jungle vibe.  

Trip Logistics

All Inclusive Packages: Our packages make planning your Central American experience a breeze.  Simply fly into the capital city of San Jose (roughly 3 hours from Dallas or Miami) and catch a cab to your downtown hotel (ask us for a current listing or our favorites...)   You'll be met there the next morning by your driver for the transfer to Jungle Tarpon Lodge.  The scenic and interesting drive takes approx. 3 hours, with the final 30 minutes being by boat- the lodge is not accessible by car.  On your final day you’ll leave early from the lodge and be dropped off at your downtown hotel (not included) or travel directly to the airport, in time to make a departing flight around noon or later.
