My fishing partner and I booked a 7 day fishing trip to Silver King Lodge from the UK, direct with the operators. Bob Arsenault couldn't have been more helpful in answering all our questions and making the necessary arrangements. We also had the good fortune to meet Bob at the Lodge as he was there for our whole stay, fishing,... More

This was a fantastic trip and a great adventure. From the time we flew in to the time we left we were treated like kings and queens. Fishing guides were excellent. They were friendly knew the waters and got us on the Tarpon. We caught some inside the mouth of the river but the real action is outside. First two... More

From arrival to departure, this trip was outstanding. The fishing is terrific and the guides, boats, and equipment are excellent. The guides know the waters, know where to find baitfish, and where the tarpon can be found. They're hardworking, fun, and flexible in their approach. Our group of 5 landed 7 or 8 fish and hooked up with an equal... More

My husband and I visited SKL for our 25th Anniversary trip. My husband has always wanted to catch Tarpon and boy did he ever. I accompanied him as a "Non-Angler" and just enjoyed the boat rides and taking pictures of him fishing. The lodge is great and the service is great. We are already planning our next trip and hopefully... More

I have been coming here for eight years. I Flyfish only forTarpon. This is the best fly fishing for Tarpon in the world. Absolutely do not come here unless you're going to fish. The lodge is in a very remote area and there is absolutely nothing to do but fish. On the other hand they have the best guides and... More

Silver King Lodge (SKL) is a fishing lodge. Do not go there if you are not interested in fishing. If you are interested in fishing for Tarpon - then GO. The lodge is very well run and rooms are very comfortable. My wife always accompanies me on these trip as she enjoys the fishing if the weather is rough. In... More

This wasn't my fist time to SKL, I've also been there in September and October, and November, March, and April too. I've tried to experience all of the seasons in Barra del Colorado. You go to SKL for only one reason... to go fishing. Everything else just happens to fill those very few hours you aren't sleeping or fishing. SKL... More

The fishing was good, guides were great and the lodge and employees were nice. The big disappointment was the food wich they advertise as being first class-this is a quote form the website ""Our restaurant serves the finest all you can eat buffet style food around. Our legendary service features fine cuisine such as Black & White Sesame Crusted Yellow... More

We're sorry that the food disappointed you. That's our fault. First, we hadn't updated the website and secondly, that's why we have a new management team! We've revamped our menu to focus on serving the finest Costa Rican cuisine - using sustainable, locally grown fruits and vegetables (in season), along with local seafood (in season), beef, chicken and pork -...
