Golden Dorado in the Peaceful Countryside of Uruguay
paper texture
Rio Mate Lodge is located in the quiet and peaceful rolling hills of Uruguay on the banks of the Rio Mate, a tributary of the Rio Uruguay. The lodge, situated on a high bank overlooking the river, provides guests with spectacular views from the comfortable common rooms, infinity pool, and private quarters. What separates Rio Mate Lodge from other dorado destinations is the variety of water that is immediately available. From big water to small creeks and medium-sized rivers, this fishery has it all.

Lodging Details
The accommodations are set up suite style for double occupancy, and all rooms enjoy a view of the Rio Mate. The lodge features a large porch overlooking the river with plenty of seating, which naturally attracts guests after a day of fishing, and is the perfect place for cocktails, cigars, and fishing stories.

Food and Beverages
In the morning, guests wake up to the sun rising over the Rio Mate, and after a delicious breakfast of fruit, eggs made to order, and baked goods, anglers can jump in the skiffs and be casting to dorado minutes from the lodge. Lunches are typically held at the lodge during the heat of the day but depending on the fishing program, lunch may be held in the field. The cuisine is nothing short of spectacular and includes large portions of home-style Uruguayan classics, and some of the dishes feature locally harvested birds from the area like dove and perdiz.

Typical Length of Stay
Three (3) nights minimum but stays of any length can be accommodated. Depending on flights, it is common for anglers to have a half day of fishing on either the front or back end of their stay. For example, a 3-night stay includes 3.5 days of guided fishing.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Unlimited shooting with no limit for doves is available with a gun rental of $60 per day and $15 per box of shells. This can be arranged at the lodge per session (usually morning or evening) and can be paid for in cash directly to the lodge.

Internet / Communications
Uruguay provides good cell phone coverage for anglers with international phone plans. There is reliable Wi-Fi at the lodge.
