Bluewater: Limited Availability at Casa Vieja Lodge

March 31, 2023

What: Fishing is picking up at Casa Vieja Lodge, with the Spring and Summer months boasting double-digit sailfish raises along with opportunities for blue marlin, tuna, and mahi-mahi. Perhaps the most famous lodge in the entire world of bluewater sportfishing, Casa Vieja Lodge has long been known for world-class bluewater boats and crews, the best captains in the business, and the highest quality accommodations in the area.

The Lodge is located less than a mile from the entrance to Marina Pez Vela, and after a long and productive day on the water, you can be back in the Casa Vieja’s pool in under five minutes. Gone are the days of running the not-so-popular “la cala de la muerte” (the “inlet of death”) to and from the Lodge to the fishing each day. And while a trip to Casa Vieja Lodge is definitely a four-star experience, the total “cost-per-fish-released-ratio” makes this one of the finest values in the entire world of bluewater fishing.
