Blue Bayou Lodge
Nestled along the coastline of Iztapa, Guatemala, the Blue Bayou Lodge is located just five minutes from La Marina Pez Vela in a secure and private residential complex built on a series of water channels leading out to the Pacific. The Lodge can hold groups as large as 15 guests, and all rooms feature air conditioning and private bathrooms. Amenities also include a beautiful pool, decks overlooking the water, and lots of shade from the exotic plant life surrounding the property. The Lodge’s bar is set up just a few paces from the temperature-controlled pool, which is great for post-fishing swims. The Lodge also offers Wi-Fi for those wanting to keep in touch throughout their trip, as well as a Skype phone line for unlimited internet phone calls.
Food and Beverages
Every morning before your departure, the Lodge serves a family-style Guatemalan breakfast (juice, coffee, eggs, fruit, and beans). A packed boat lunch features both a hot meal and – usually – fresh ceviche (depending on the Dorado bite). Ice-cold beers, plenty of iced-down sodas and water, and rum on the boat will keep you lubricated and hydrated throughout the days. The evenings consist of a cocktail hour, appetizers, and the main dinner course. Local seafood is typically on the menu, but a variety of quality meats are always available for those who want to mix it up.
Typical Length of Stay
The most popular trip package at Blue Bayou Lodge is four (4) nights / three (3) fishing days, although longer trips can certainly be arranged. Contact Yellow Dog for more details.
Non-Angling Activities and Options
For non-anglers, Guatemala is an interesting and diverse country. Side trips can be arranged to Antigua, Tikal, and the Lake Atitlan region. These areas offer national parks, ruins, biosphere reserves, incredible wildlife viewing, Mayan temples, shopping, horseback riding, and more.
Internet / Communications
Wi-Fi is available at the Lodge and some cell phone providers may have service that works in this part of Guatemala.
