I have been accused of having a fishing problem but the truth is you will have a problem if you keep me from going fishing. That being said I have just returned from 4 days of fishing with brothers and family from this incredible place. The Lorenz family is now my family. They extended every kindness to make our stay...

My uncles and I went to Bahia La Tortuga not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations, dining and fishing. The cuisine and service were top notch. The owner John and his staff we're very nice and helpful. Anything you wanted they would get it for you. In the 3 days we fished we all landed... More

I would definitely recommend trying this out. We had a great time even though the fishing was slow (18 sails in 5 days, 1 big Marlin, and a monster Durado). I was hoping for big roosters also and was under the impression it was a simple thing. However the weather was a huge factor and would have been difficult yet... More

What can I say but Bahia La Tortuga is a great place to stay and fish! John and everyone are first class with great accommodations, food, atmosphere and most of all great fishing and fishing guides. There were four of us that fished for four days, we raised 87 sailfish, caught 33 of them on conventional, spinning and fly tackle.... More

It's always great to be able to return to a place and have it be just as special each and every time. The fishing yet again was Epic ...17 Sailfish over 3 days (including going 9 for 9 in... More

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
