We had a fantastic time at the Crocodile Bay Resort. The weather was perfect, the drinks were cold and the fishing was even better.The staff were great and very helpful. Hopefully the next time I visit I'll land that marlin! Can't wait to visit again.

Chose Crocodile Bay based upon the recommendation of family and because we wanted to fish. Found out about even more tours and activities once we arrived. And speaking of arriving, from the moment we landed at the Puerto Jimenez airstrip, we were greeted warmly and once we reached the lodge, Olympia greeted us with so much joy and enthusiasm. Todd...

My Wife and I visited Crocodile Bay in March and enjoyed every minute of it; from the jungle flight down to Peurto Jiminez airstrip, to the fabulous fishing. The accommodation was perfect. Our room was comfortable, spacious and most importantly (to me anyway) the air conditioning was very effective. Unlike some fishing lodges, there was a great choice of food...

After searching for a location to take my son fishing, we settled on Crocodile Bay Resort. In short, travel took longer than we would have hoped - had to spend the night in San Jose the first night and multiple connection on the way back. This said, all of the better fishing and Eco lodges are not a plane flight...

What a fantastic experience this place offers. My wife, son and niece went down for 4 days. We had some of the best fishing we have ever experienced. The rooms are not 5 star but that's part of the neat experience. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The boats and captains are as good as you will...

We have held a fishing tournament the last 3 years at Crocodile Bay. The service is excellent and the staff go out of their way to ensure a fantastic trip for our guests. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. With all the amenities it's hard to believe you are in the jungle. The fishing is the star of...

Crocodile Bay is absolutely beautiful hotel and spa. And a fisherman's dream. It is primarily a fishing resort, with a fleet of tower boats and crews to man them. They go out everyday at 6:30 am and return at 3:00 pm. Breakfast is at 5:30. There are also eco-tours for non 'fishermen' or for those who want to take a...
