I had a blast fishing at Rio Indio Lodge. The owner opened the lodge all just FOR ME! Can you believe that??? So this place is literally in the middle of the rain forest which is great for all the fishing opportunities, but there are things that the people cannot control: immigration at the border, weather, waves, lack of baitfish, etc. But in the midst of all that, I had to cast a lot of times to get the fish that I wanted: Tarpon, Snook, Mojarra, Guapote (Rainbow Bass), etc. My guide, Rosendo, was awesome. He would check out the water/weather conditions and let me know prior to each day what he thinks is the best plan for that day. I wanted to do more Tarpon fishing but there wasn't a lot of baitfish and the weather didn't cooperate. So we ended up doing a lot of jungle fishing which resulted in finally me achieving a bucket list item of catching a Guapote. Because I worked hard casting so many times, I burned a lot of calories and ate a ton of the delicious food that the kitchen staff prepared for me. Any requests, they will be happy to try to accommodate you. And best of all, is that the staff will cook any of the fish that you catch and they'll do it amazingly! I highly recommend people to check this place out because even when I was fishing, there were so many wildlife sightings. Actually, I should back up that the folks will help plan everything in advance so there is no worry on your part. This even includes the COVID test that you have to take prior to going to Nicaragua.

We stayed at the Rio Indio Lodge for a week, and we had a great time. Beautiful nature around, good food and helpful team, nice canoë tours and great fishing sessions with our 5 and 6 year old sons who learned the basics thanks to Franklin, the nice and patient guide. We recommend it to families who like nature !

I just returned from Rio Indio and I have to say it was an amazing experience. The lodge itself is built on a grand scale with tropical hardwoods and my room was both spacious and immaculately clean. The setting on Morgan Lagoon is beautiful and utterly tranquil. Special mention has to be made of the food, which was plentiful and outstanding. We ate like kings and the lodge's location made it easy to boat back in for lunch with minimal time lost fishing. Our guide, Porfirio, was a very skilled boat driver who never stopped working to find us fish. I must also recognize Alfredo, the lodge manager, who was relentless in ensuring we had everything we needed and a superb dinner companion. Prior to going I heard a lot of concerns about safety in Nicaragua. As a retired cop I can say I never saw any cause for concern. Transiting through Costa Rica avoids potential issues in Managua and the lodge is in a remote area far from political disturbances. You pass through army checkpoints on the river and at the border with no issues. We travelled into the lodge by chartered plane and went out via the river and then an Uber for the 4 hr drive into San Juan. I highly recommend this as it gives you a bird's eye view of the coffee and banana plantations and then you get a chance to see even more of the country from the water. Weather in November can be variable, pack your best rain gear because all that rainforest isn't a coincidence! Can't wait to return and get back to tarpon fishing!

Great trip for me and my boy into the jungle. Owners were accommodating. Guides were knowledgeable and hilarious. A great fishing experience all around with world class amenities. The meals and rum bar were a welcome addition after a long day on the water. Highly recommended.
