Best fishing trip of my life! Took my wife along with me and she absolutely loved it too. We spent five amazing days fishing with John in July 2012. We caught several large Sail Fish, Dorado, Rooster Fish, Tuna, and a giant Sierra Mackerel. Every morning we woke up with feelings of anticipation and excitement for what the day might... More

My friends and I just returned from a trip to the Bahia La Tortuga lodge in Puerto Vicente Mexico and we're already talking about going back. None of us had any grand expectations other than to get away from a wet cool winter here in Washington, get some sun, and maybe catch some fish but boy were our expectations exceeded... More

This is my 6th trip to John and Angie's and my most enjoyable yet. John and Angie feel like family to us and yes they are so welcoming it does feel like home. This trip we traveled with my best friend and his wife and had the time of our lives. Probably spent 90 percent of the available minutes of... More

What an adventure!! Our first trip to Bahia La Tortuga and we were not disappointed. The fishing was amazing, the food was fabulous, and the overall service was outstanding. We have already booked our next trip.

The lodge, at Bahia La Tortuga, suffered significant damage from an earthquake, who's epicenter was very close to Puerto Vicente. The quake measured over 7 points in magnitude, and occurred this past summer. Owners John and Angelina Lorenz wasted no time in hiring a contractor for the reconstruction of the lodge. The work was completed prior to the start of... More

Flowers, smiles and blue water greet you when you arrive. Located in a small village, filled with kind and friendly residents, we stepped out of reality and into a beautiful paradise. Coming from North Idaho, my hope was to catch 1 Dorado and if fortune really smiled on me a Roosterfish. Well, I hit the lottery. Everyday we caught multiple... More

Owners, John and Angie continue to improve on a winning format- the place subtly improves each year yet retains the unique family style atmosphere. While I go there with my adult sons primarily for the fishing, relax on a beautiful beach and to see friends from over the years in this small coastal village. The lodge itself and the setting...

SO once I got there it was AWESOME location and perfect fishing place as... More

This place just improves each visit! The staff was fantastic, always meeting you with a cold drink upon your return from a HOT day fishing. Making a super refreshing agua de jamaica to quench your thirst. The food was great as always. Lobster, various soups, taquitos, fresh totopos ( chips) wonderful, chicken, steak, always fresh and flavorful! The accomodations are... More

Had a great time at the resort. Food was excellent. If you love seafood you will love it here. Owner John is a great guy and an OK poker player. Staff was super nice, helpful and the lodge was immaculate. Only negatives were an occasion am septic smell, John's barking dogs and hard beds. Caught fish even with a tropical... More
