I recently spent 7 days at Crocodile Bay Resort and was sorry to leave. The fishing was great, the resort grounds were beautiful and well kept and of course the staff was wonderful. Plenty to do aside from fishing as well. It's a beautiful little town and worth exploring everything this wonderful area has to offer.

It has been over a month since my husband and I were at Crocodile Bay, but I would be remiss if I did not write since I am not a fisherman, but a birder and garden gal. I was a little concerned that since fishing is the big thing, the other tours would not be given much attention. I was... More

...but this was the first time I stayed at Crocodile.

Olympia is the manager and there's... More

My wife and I spent a week at Crocodile Bay as a 60th birthday present for me. I like to fish and my wife likes to enjoy the natural world. Boy, were we in for a treat. The fishing was great and the rain forest was everything we'd imagined. We zip lined and enjoyed the spa as well. I would... More
