I was with a group of 25 people for an annual corporate retreat and this was my first year attending the Crocodile Bay trip. Not only is the fishing truly world class, (we had tons of action and caught everything from Blue Marlin to Sail Fish to Mai Mai, to Rooster fish and Rock Snapper) but every single staff member...

Our first trip to Costa Rica couldn't have been better! Crocodile Bay Resort is clean, safe, has well kept grounds, and a staff that is friendly and attentive to your needs. The food is wonderful! The fishing guides are knowledgeable and focus on you having the best experience possible. The Spa affords pampering for both men & women in a...

My first trip to CR, and Crocodile Bay. Really enjoyed my time in San Jose, found the people wonderful and polite. Transportation was perfect, the little plane jump over to CBR is easy and beautiful. The lodge is right by the airstrip, very convenient. Accommodations are very comfortable, not super luxurious by any stretch with was perfectly fine. They did...

My visit was primarily to fish. The fishing was not as good as expected (caught two sailfish), but everything else was great. There are many tours and activities if someone in your party does not want to fish. The rooms and grounds are excellent and the food is superb. The staff are so friendly you feel like yo have known...

We stayed at Crocodile Bay Resort in January of 2017. The people were wonderful, loved the rooms and food and so many things to see and do on the resort and close by. And excellent fishing. We hope to visit again soon! Be sure to sign up for the snorkeling, monkey tour and chocolate farm tour...they were all amazing!

My husband and I were fortunate enough to return to Crocodile Bay for our second time in February. Weather wise, this trip was the total opposite of our last trip in November 2016. (We were evacuated due to the CRAZY weather from Hurricane Otto and there was no fishing!). This time around we were able to spend 9 days and...

My husband and I visited Crocodile Bay for the first time during the Christmas holiday. I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had.

The fishing was a bit slow, but that is the very nature of fishing. We were on a couples vacation and it was perfect. My wife and her friend enjoyed the spa (chocolate facial, massage, facial etc) as well as ocean kayaking and stand up paddle boarding in the mangrove forest while my friend and I fished. We caught sailfish,...
