The Silver King Lodge is a sport fishing lodge in the renown Barra del Colorado Wildlife Preserve / eco-park some 140 miles north of San Jose, located near the mouth of the Rio del Colorado - focusing on the Atlantic tarpon, a fantastic game fish known for spectacular leaps and its hard-fighting nature. We also offer opportunities to fish for a wide variety of fresh-water, salt-water inshore, and salt-water off-shore fish - including tuna. The Silver King Lodge features 12 double-occupancy rooms, all air conditioned - with free satellite internet / WiFi; satellite TV and a plethora of amenities that includes our outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, massages, bar with inclusive local liquors, local beer and house wines - as well as a culinary staff that will make sure you are ready to bring in that 175 lb tarpon! All meals are included. And you can pack light for the jungle - our housekeeping staff provides free, same-day laundry service! Our renown guides are ready with our provided rods and tackle aboard our own ocean-capable boats - equipped with marine radios and fish finders - to take you to where the fish are... Because that's why you came! We include arrival car service at Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, then either charter air service (a short 35 minute flight) or car / boat transportation (about 5 scenic hours) to and from the lodge and airport transportation back to Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose. We can also arrange hotel lodging in San Jose.

Great location, excellent boatman who knew where to fish and we all caught three to four big fish per day up to 180lb. The accommodation is comfortable and air conditioned. The food superb and free beer whenever you wanted one. I would highly recommend this thrilling holiday

This place was great, small plane ride over was a little iffy, but the Tarpon fishing was world class. The accommodations were pretty good considering it's in the jungle and the staff could not have been any nicer. I'm definitely keeping this place in the "go back in the future"

We had the most remarkable three days at Silver King Lodge, which will live with us for many years to come. The bucket list Tarpon was caught on the first day within 1/2 hour of getting to the fishing grounds! We can not praise Mike and his staff enough, everything was excellent
