We had a wonderful time at the Bahia Rica Kayak and Fishing lodge. Our room was simple but it had all we need. The badroom was fine, but a new shower would be even better. The breakfast was fantastic. As Belgians we love bread and Vigdis made really good bread. The next morning we had pancakes, these were also incredibly... More

I stay with my family, my husband and my daughter (12 years old). We booked triple room, which was very large and comfortable for the three of us. The lodge is like Tarzan house, a wooden house with lots of details what make you like being at home. The shared bathroom is upstairs, with a shower "open" to beautiful garden.... More

We booked our trip to the Bahia Rica Lodge specifically for the bioluminescent tour. Sadly there was none to be seen, at all. I felt it was a bit of a bait and switch. It should be billed as simply a night kayak trip say nothing of the bioluminescent, that way if people see some it is a nice surprise.... More

A very special place! The combination of a wonderful natural environment and the perfect organized tours and excursions, make for an unforgettable vacation. We went on the kayaking and Tortuga Island tours, we also relaxed by the beautiful beach. The view was extremely relaxing and beautiful! The visits of the monkeys were a highlight. We will certainly come back!

My family had the amazing opportunity to night kayak with Vigdis and experience the bioluminescence. What a fantastic experience! I had never been in a kayak and was a little scared of being on the ocean at night. Vigdis was so calm and walked me through the whole process. This is a great way to spend an evening!

Our family traveled to Bahia Rica looking for a place and experience different from the mainstay tourist spots. This choice proved to be right on. The owners, Vigdis and Thomas, were wonderful hosts. We went on several tours with Bahia Rica - fishing, snorkeling, Tortuga Island, whale/dolphin/turtle watching, and the night bioluminescence kayaking (this is a MUST see - don't... More

At Bahia Rica you will be staying in big comfortable rooms in a real jungle setting.
