We are located in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica on the shores of the Gulfo Dulce, surrounded by record class grounds for offshore and inshore fishing. The gulf, classified as a tropical fjord, is fed by an extensive network of rivers, and lined by mangrove estuary and reefs. A major ocean current runs north along the western coast of South America to Costa Rica. It hits our area in Central America, bringing with it an abundance of game fish and sea life (over 700 species of saltwater fish).

This Villa offers anglers an experience very different from that of a typical fishing lodge, resort or hotel. The villa caters to anglers who want comfort, freedom and services in a laid-back atmosphere

The villa is 3 storey and sits conveniently in front of the pier. It offers the ultimate in accommodations complete with a roof top deck with pool, outdoor shower, large living area with satellite tv, bar, bbq, international telephone (with incoming 1-800 number) and 360 degree views of the surrounding oceanfront and mangrove estuary.

Conveniently located across from the pier and just a few blocks from the center of town, this luxury villa was built and designed to be a private sport fishing retreat. The 3 story villa offers a total 2500 sq ft of private living space consisting of 2 air conditioned suites, outdoor decks and garden rancho.

Sport fishing package in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica

Your cook, Margarita, prepares a light breakfast in the early morning (coffee, juice, tropical fruit and fresh baked goods), and packs your hot breakfast and lunch cooler for your fishing day. She can be hired to prepare your catch of the day for dinner as well. She works from a service kitchen on the main floor, separate from your living space.

Trips offshore are diverse and always exciting with the wide variety of fishing tactics we use. From trolling with conventional tackle or dead bait (mullet, ballyhoo and mackerel), to bait & switch, live bait and fly fishing. Many of our methods target all species at once, and will often result in double or triple hook-ups.

The endless volcanic coastline that runs along this 'tropical fjord' makes it prime area for a number of prized inshore species. The area is famous for 'giant' (50+ lbs) Roosterfish as they prefer volcanic rock outcrops. On the western end of the Gulfo Dulce, large cubera snapper, groupers, and amberjacks call 'Matapalo Rock' their home. Occasionally a mako shark will surprise an angler when it skyrockets 10 feet in the air after taking a bait.
