In terms of dedicated big-game fishing resorts, Crocodile Bay is right up there. Situated on Costa Rica’s South Pacific Coast in 44 acres of lush tropical gardens, with 44 air-conditioned rooms and first-class facilities, this place has it all. And that includes some of the best fishing in Costa Rica, with catch-and-release billfishing in the Pacific, plus inshore fishing in the Golfo Dulce for roosterfish, snapper and jacks.





The fishing

There’s a good reason why Crocodile Bay regularly features on TV shows and in fishing magazines around the world. They’re serious about what they do here, and they’re seriously good at it. They have a fleet of 40 boats ready for action every day – all are easily accessed from an 850-foot private pier and include 24’ center consoles, 27’ offshore center consoles and 32′ and 33’ tower boats, plus the 35′ owner’s tower boat.

As for the fishing, take your pick from some of the most exciting saltwater options imaginable. There’s world-class catch-and-release billfishing in the Pacific for sailfish, striped, blue and black marlin, dorado, tuna and wahoo. Meanwhile, fishing in Costa Rica’s Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf) for roosterfish, cubera snapper, jack crevalle, bluefin trevally, sierra mackerel, tripletail and grouper is excellent throughout the year. A variety of methods are employed, including live bait, trolling, casting, and fly-fishing.
