First let me say that Sean did an amazing job with our booking and all pre trip arrangements, great communication and customer service. Next let me thank Olympia for the great job of welcoming us and ensuring that all our requests were taken care of on a daily basis. Todd Staley runs a sensational operation, and the staff is friendly... More

I just wanted to take the time and tell others about my great trip to Crocodile Bay resort. I have been able to travel all around the world for fishing and i would rate this resort at the top. My Crocodile Bay experience went beyond just fishing, which alone is worth the trip but also included zip lining, snorkeling and... More

This was our 7th or 8th trip to CB... could go other places; but we choose to visit a place known for quality and service. Capt. Allan helped Mark catch his first sail on a fly - what a thrill! The rest of the fishing experience with Allan was equally fabulous - being at the top of the catch &... More

My husband, an avid angler who has traveled many countries, arranged our trip to Crocodile Bay with the goal of landing a sailfish on a fly. We have traveled to Africa, Alaska, the Caribbean, Mexico and he has been to CR before and other Central and South American countries all centered around fishing. I was floored at being greeted with... More

This is a place where dreams become reality. The staff, the accommodations, the environment are perfect. The lodge team does everything to make your stay perfect. Even when something unexpected happens the lodge is there to save the day. From the second you step off the plane in San Jose you are secured and catered too. All of this in... More

Our third trip to Costa Rica, first to the Osa Peninsula although we have fished these same waters in the past. We planned to return to another excellent lodge but friends convinced us to try Crocodile Bay and we were not sorry. The fishing fleet and crews were first rate, the lodge comfortable and well appointed and the value excellent... More

Stayed here with my wife and 2 1/2 yr old over New Years. Great little resort. Super friendly staff that are always willing to please. The pool area is great. The dock and boats are all top notch. Rooms are large, comfortable, and clean. During New years eve and New Years, the town has a party and the music can... More

We walked in the front door and were greeted by a beautiful lady singing us a song along with two cocktails on the reception counter (rum optional). That was our initial introduction to this amazing place. Anything and everything we needed was just a question away. All the staff are like one big happy family. Everyone always has a smile... More

Let me start off by saying that we did not fish while we stayed at the Crocodile Bay Resort. It's not that we didn't want to, but our limited time in the Osa Peninsula left us no time to fish. What we did see however, was a ton of other guests bringing in huge fish from their day ocean excursions,... More
