Rarely do you find a lodge that can put you into great inshore and offshore fishing, provide superior accommodations, excellent cuisine and a level of hospitality that makes you feel right at home. Zancudo Lodge is “the whole enchilada.” It is the perfect place to take your family to enjoy all that this magnificent country has to offer. Eco tours, wide sandy beaches, incredible sunsets and a fleet of boats and captains that are unmatched; all combine to make Zancudo the ultimate Pacific Coast getaway.
Marlin, sailfish, roosterfish, dorado, yellowfin tuna, amberjack, jack crevalle, giant snapper…did we miss anything? The Gulfo Dulce and nearby bluewater has it all! Fully equipped offshore pangas and 32-foot Contenders are all available to suit your fishing needs.
There are 16 air-conditioned guest suites including 2 master suites and 2 junior suites. All accommodations have satellite TV, daily maid service, mini-bar and an en-suite bathroom. There’s also a swimming pool, bocce ball, gorgeous beach, covered open dining area, fruit and vegetable gardens.
All conventional gear, lures and bait are provided by the lodge. Please feel free to bring along your favorite tackle if you so desire. A limited amount of fly gear is available; we suggest that you bring your own fly gear along with a full selection of flies and leaders.
Guests fly into San Jose International airport and typically overnight, catching the early flight to Puerto Jimenez the next morning. After landing at the airstrip, collect your luggage and be escorted to the marina for the short boat transfer to the lodge. You will arrive in time to have a full day to enjoy all scheduled activities. Travelers must have a valid, non-damaged passport good for duration of stay.
Packages vary depending on number of people/boat, type of boat and level of accommodation.
For example: 4-night/3-day fishing package is $3,495 per person with 2 per room and standard boat or $3,095 with 3 per room and standard boat.
After recently returning from my trip to Zancudo Lodge, I compiled the top five reasons to visit the lodge on your next trip. As you will read, the destination is great for fishers and non-fishers alike. If you’re looking for a tropical place to fish for a few days while enjoying eco tours with the family or non-fishing companion, look no further!
