Off-The-Grid Arapaima Jungle Adventure
paper texture
If you’re the kind of angler that loves exotic, off-the-grid adventure fishing, then fishing for massive arapaima in the South American jungles of Guyana should definitely be added to the list! Arapaima is the largest, scaled freshwater fish on the planet, and this is one of the few places where these dinosaurs can be hooked and landed on a fly. In fact, this entire area (controlled and operated by the Amerindians of Rewa Village) has been designated fly fishing-only, creating what is hands-down the healthiest and most productive arapaima fishery in the world.

Lodging Details
Anglers base out of Rewa Eco Lodge, located near the confluence of the Rewa and Rupununi Rivers in the heart of the Guyanan jungle. The lodge features spacious private cabanas, a main dining and bar area, a dock and deck area, and access to the nearby Amerindian village of Rewa. With a maximum capacity of only four anglers per week, each guest usually has his/her own private cabana. Each cabin features two full-sized beds draped with netting, desks, a large front deck, hammock, rod racks, and a private, outdoor bathroom and shower area complete with running water and flushable toilets.

Anglers also have the option of an up-river camp – something that we highly recommend in order to access great water and avoid long boat rides during the latter part of the week. The Rewa staff has set up a deluxe “out camp” site complete with hammocks strung with mosquito netting, showers, a toilet, a full kitchen area, a covered dining area, and even a generator and lights. The camp location also features a freezer to guarantee the coldest beer in the jungle!

Both the eco-lodge location and the up-river jungle camp are very comfortable, and the Rewa staff has gone to great lengths to ensure that guests enjoy their time in the jungle. The lodge is run by the village, and in fact, the entire operation is a Costa-sponsored Indifly conservation project initiated in 2013. The village of Rewa staffs every position at the lodge, including guides, chefs, boatmen, bartenders, housekeepers, and more. The end result is a team of people who take great pride in delivering excellent customer service and a jungle experience that is second to none.

Food and Beverages
Breakfast and dinners are usually served in the main dining area at Rewa Eco-Lodge – a large, outdoor sitting area with a massive palapa roof structure. Breakfast features eggs, pancakes, a variety of fruits, breakfast meats, baked goods, and plenty of coffee and juice. Dinners always feature several meat and chicken dishes, vegetables, and different regional dishes. Lunches are usually served near the fishing areas each day, and it is typical to fish in the morning before taking a mid-day break in a cool, shady area with tables set up, a large meal served, and hammocks strung for an afternoon siesta. All of the meals served are quite good, and special requests can usually be accommodated.

Typical Length of Stay
The standard package for the Guyana arapaima program is seven (7) nights and six (6) days of fishing, with one night on each end typically spent in the Guyanan capital of Georgetown. Most packages run from Saturday to Saturday. Contact Yellow Dog for specific trip dates and availability.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Rewa Eco Lodge and the Guyanan arapaima program operates in a remote, off-the-grid, fishing-focused jungle region. It is not the ideal location for non-anglers and is best suited to those who are there to fish. That said, the wildlife, birds, and butterflies are amazing, and visits to nearby villages, boat rides up and down the rivers, and jungle hikes can all be arranged.

Internet / Communications
Satellite Wi-Fi is available at Rewa Eco Lodge, although the coverage can be spotty and bandwidth is limited. There is a satellite phone at the lodge for emergency use.
