Crocodile Bay Resort located on the Osa Peninsula has some of the best sport fishing in Costa Rica. There is over 44 acres of land that the resort sits on and the 40 rooms are surrounded by lush tropical gardens.

The beautiful resort has a magnificent all-inclusive daily menu, 5,000 sq foot luxury spa, swimming pool, hot tub and a conference center that can accommodate up to 80 people.

Just off of the Golfo Dulce Crocodile Bay Resort is the perfect destination on the Osa Peninsula. This part of Costa Rica is one of the most biologically diverse places in the world as it has been described by National Geographic.

All the rooms for the resort are strategically located throughout the tropical gardens and the main building for the resort, that has the restaurant, bar & reception area, is the focus point of the property. The pool and jacuzzi were designed around the tropical surrounding and it includes a waterfall. You cannot but notice all the jungle sounds while relaxing at the pool. There is also a gift shop where you can find many locally made gifts.

Once on the water you are invited to enjoy the private inshore & offshore fleet of fishing boats! Getting there is no problem as Crocodile Bay Resort has their own 800 foot dock!

During your visit to Crocodile Bay Resort you will be greeted by friendly, English-speaking staff, they will ensure your stay to be unforgettable. Upon returning to the resort after your fun filled day fishing or after an exhilarating tour you can make yourself at home and enjoy your favorite drink at our bar or take a relaxing swim. Once the sun is getting ready to set be sure to keep your eye out in the trees for one of our several species of monkeys that like to visit us. Don't forget all of the other animals & birds that we have here on the Osa Peninsula include the Scarlet Macaw, the largest endangered parrot. Then for dinner dine with us at our elegant restaurant.

If you prefer to opt out of fishing there are many fun adventures you can go on including: kayaking, rainforest treks, rainforest zip line / canopy tours, orchid gardens, surfing lessons, bird watching, dolphin and whale watching, or just visit some of the most secluded beaches in Costa Rica!

"Our trip to Crocodile Bay Lodge was definitely the trip of a lifetime and we plan on returing in 2009. The one comment that I have is that no one my age should have to fight more than two yellowfins in one day. All kidding aside, I didn't hear one negative comment from our group. The enture staff from San Jose to the lodge to the pier and the boat crew were super. The courtesy and friendliness of all was unsurpassable. We will be in contact toward the end of the year. Thanks again for a great trip."

"We greatly appreciated all that you guys did for us. In particular we were impressed by how smoothly all the travel and transfer arrangements that you organized for us in Costa Rica went.

It really stood out how efficient, competent and well organized every one we dealt with from Crocodile bay was (especially in contrast the chaos and shear incompetency we encountered at Miami and JFK on the return trip).
We also really appreciated just how great everyone at the Lodge was at taking care of us and that they were all so willing to make that extra effort to ensure that everything went well. We all had a very good time.
So thanks you for that and for phoning to check that out trip went well."

"My wife and I had a wonderful time at Crocodile Bay. The resort was all that one could hope for and more. I have fished in Alaska, Canada, Florida just to name a few and I can honestly say that I have never been at a fishing resort that was run as well as Crocodile Bay. The minute we cleared immigrations we were taken care of. We never had to worry about what we were supposed to do or when we were supposed to do it. The tours were fun and educational. The resort workers were very friendly and helpful. The boats were very clean and the captains and mates did everything in their power to try and help us catch fish. The fish didn't always cooperate but that is why they call it fishing and not just catching. I stepped off a boat after fishing all day and told Todd I wish I could find something to complain about but I jsut couldn't come up with anything. We caught sails, dorado, and rooster fish for the first time in our lives and loved every minute of it. I probably won't make it back in 2008 but I am almost positive you will see us again in early 2009. We went to Jamaica in Dec., Costa Rica in Jan. and just got back from the Dominican Republic. The best trip of them all was the trip to Croodile Bay."
