Crocodile Bay Resort Costa Rica Eco Tours – The Lizard King



Carpe Noctem! Seize the Night – (Photo by Dennis Attencio)

Crocodile Bay Resort offers thirty of Costa Rica’s most popular Costa Rica eco tours.  A guest favorite is our jungle night walk where visitors will witness a staggering variety of wildlife. From red-eyed tree frogs and snakes to nocturnal mammals, you will be amazed to see the jungle come to life after the sun sets. If you’re really brave we also offer a night zip-line canopy tour.

Caminar en la noche en el bosque es toda una aventura, nuestra visión tal vez se reduce pero gracias a una linterna o foco podemos observar a nuestro alrededor en pequeños segmentos y así escanear de forma más detallada hojas, ramas, troncos…. y verán una gran actividad de vida salvaje pequeña que trabaja sin parar toda la noche y otros descansando para estar listo en el día como éste amigo, el

Costa Rica Fishing Report Happy Halloween! This week we kicked off our 15th season of sport fishing and adventure at Crocodile Bay Resort, Costa Rica, and the monster fish showed up to celebrate Halloween. Our first group from Russia scored big on opening day (Sunday) bringing in three pacific blue marlin (150lbs, 250lbs, and 400+lbs – Photos courtesy Sergey Chmykhov and Mikhail Fedyushkin), six yellowfin tuna (Sashimi treats), dorado, and roosterfish inshore. If that’s not enough to make you “howl”, we had Sean Harrell (from our home office in California) and his friend Elizabeth down and they delivered “terror” inshore releasing 6 roosterfish and a bagging a bright orange cubera snapper that lit up like a pumpkin when it hit.

Yesterday one of our groups from Ireland went 3 for 6 on sailfish (another offshore boat produced the same numbers)landing one sailfish and one dorado on the fly. The only “trick” so far has been the weather. Historically the end of October can be “wet” as we transition from our rainy season into the dry and sunny Costa Rican summer season. The sun is shining and has been all week!We have yet to see what new monsters will be caught and released this afternoon! Have a fun and SAFE halloween. We hope to see you soon at Crocodile Bay Resort catching some “monsters” of your own.

A sustainable farming technique that has minimal impact on the ecosystem.  Most of these farms include the highly profitable Cocoa tree as one of their crops. Tilapia is a very popular Costa Rica fish.
