Located near gorgeous Puerto Jiménez, Crocodile Bay Resort is a premier resort for lovers of sport fishing and ecotourism. The resort features 44 acres of tropical gardens near the Pacific Ocean. Inshore and offshore fishing charters are available daily and allow guests to catch sailfish, blue and black marlin, tuna, grouper, roosterfish and much more. Guests can choose from a variety of fishing options, including casting, fly-fishing, live bait and trolling.

The all-inclusive Crocodile Bay Resort is more than a fishing destination, though. It is also popular among vacationers who simply want to relax. The pristine outdoor pool is the perfect spot to relax and regroup after a fishing adventure. Visitors can pull up a lounge chair and dip their toes in the water as they bask in the Costa Rican sun, float about in the cool blue water or swim up to the bar to order their favorite cocktail. An elevated Jacuzzi is perfect for relaxing while watching the exotic birds in the surrounding trees.

The resort also houses a full-service spa. Guests can make their way through 5,000 square feet of relaxing refuge from the hustle and bustle of other vacation adventures. Each full-service treatment uses only organic, locally grown herbs and fruits to ensure the purest experience possible. With more than 30 customizable therapies, it's easy to see why Healing, Lifestyles and Spa Magazine named Crocodile Bay Resort as one of the Top Ten Winter Escapes. Choices include traditional Swedish or hot stone massages, reflexology, tropical fruit body wraps, volcanic clay facials and much more. At the end of their sessions, guests leave feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and ready for their next Costa Rican adventure.

Crocodile Bay Resort's restaurant is just as inviting and with the all-inclusive plan all meals are included during your stay. Diners can start with a traditional Caesar salad or the soup of the day before moving on to a main course of grilled beef tenderloin or fresh sushi among many other options. All dishes are made to order and use only the freshest ingredients. In addition to the restaurant, a complimentary full breakfast is served daily, and barbecue grills are available for those who wish to prepare their own meals.

Other amenities include special wedding packages, a meeting room and a front desk that provides concierge services, luggage storage and much more. Laundry services, safety deposit boxes and bicycle rentals are also available.

"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."
