On the Pacific side of Costa Rica, tucked into the southern region known as the Osa Peninsula, you will find some of the best bluewater fishing found anywhere in the world. This is an area and a fishery that offers very consistent action for sailfish, marlin, roosters, tuna, wahoo, dorado, and more. Whether you’re looking to fish hard every single day or trying to combine a fishing trip with the numerous, fantastic ecotour activities and options offered in this part of the world, Costa Rica and Crocodile Bay have long been a Central American favorite.

Lodging Details
Crocodile Bay Resort is Costa Rica’s finest sport fishing and eco-tour destination. The resort is situated on 44 acres of lush, tropical gardens on Costa Rica’s South Pacific Coast. The rooms at Crocodile Bay are a major upgrade from the screened-in, open-air fishing, and jungle lodges found at most resorts throughout the country. All rooms at Crocodile Bay feature A/C, purified water dispensers, fishing gear racks, an observation deck, and queen-sized beds. Some rooms include optional jacuzzi tubs and a second room. There are also a number of private villas perfect for family and group vacations.

The main Resort features a game room connected to the large bar area with cash slot machines, large TV, pool table, foosball, and lounge area. Wi-Fi access and guest computer workstations are available in the lobby. The Resort pool area is a great option for relaxing after a full day of fishing or jungle adventure. Pull up a cool seat at the swim-up bar for an exotic cocktail, or enjoy an evening seat in the elevated jacuzzi for a bird’s-eye view of the scarlet macaws and other wildlife in the surrounding jungle trees. The jungle sounds are intense in the evening and provide the ultimate soundtrack for truly enjoying your vacation and forgetting the stress of everyday life.

The Resort’s 5,000-square-foot luxury spa offers guests six private massage rooms, a locker room, a shower area, and a spacious relaxation room. Crocodile Bay’s conference center is ideal for group meetings, conferences, private gatherings, and more. The facility has audio/video equipment, internet access, restaurant service, and air conditioning. If you are looking for an intimate setting to host your family or group vacation, then this is hands-down the best operation in all of Costa Rica. The resort has a number of 2,600 square-foot private villas that are close to the resort but secluded enough to provide increased privacy. They are a short walk from the restaurant area and situated away from the standard rooms and suites.

Food and Beverages
All of the Resort packages include breakfast, an à la carte lunch, and an incredible all-you-can-eat nightly dinner buffet that includes sushi (when fresh tuna is available), a variety of beef, and vegetarian choices, and other regional specials drummed up by the resort’s talented chef. You’ll be impressed with the quality of dining options deep in the heart of the jungle.

Typical Length of Stay
You may arrive and depart Crocodile Bay Resort any day of the week and arrange packages for any number of nights (minimum stay of 3 nights) or any number of fishing days. Please contact Yellow Dog for details.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Crocodile Bay is not just about the fishing! The resort’s Eco-Tour Department offers 29 privately guided eco and adventure tours in Costa Rica’s most biologically intense region. With over 350 bird species (including scarlet macaws and toucans) and countless mammal species (including all four species of indigenous monkeys, sloths, jaguars, and tapirs), the Osa Peninsula is one of the few regions in Costa Rica where one can witness a diverse array of flora and fauna in a small area and a short amount of time.

Tours include kayaking, rainforest canopy tours, snorkeling, visits to animal sanctuaries, botanical gardens, surfing, birdwatching, horseback riding, gulf tours (to spot spinner dolphin, humpback whales, pilot whales, whale sharks, and the occasional orca), and more. In the morning near the pier, it is not uncommon to see large troops of white-faced monkeys picking the trees clean of fruits, and howler monkeys dining on leaves or taking a nap. If you’re a plant lover you’ll see some of Central America’s most amazing tropical flowers, plants, and trees right on the resort grounds. There are two large walk-in butterfly habitats that allow you to experience over 50 varieties of Costa Rica’s most amazing butterfly species.

Crocodile Bay also has a 5,000-square-foot luxury spa, making this a GREAT destination for a non-angling spouse.
