Cabela's Word's Foremost Destination:
Excerpt from Cabela's website

cabelas endorsed lodgeCosta Rica's most exclusive fishing lodge combines four-star amenities with a mixed bag of world-class sportfishing. Located on 44 acres of lush tropical gardens that border the Osa Peninsula of the Pacific coast, it's only a 30-minute run to blue water, where you'll troll for marlin, sailfish, dorado, wahoo and tuna. The inshore fishing adds some great variety to your trip. You'll find an abundance of roosterfish, snapper, grouper, snook, pompano and barracuda. A fleet of 40 top-notch Boston Whalers and Strike Boats are docked at the resort's 880 ft. pier. National Geographic has described this area as one of the most ecologically intense places on earth. Observe an array of rainforest creatures including 400 species of amphibians and reptiles, 878 species of birds, and 228 species of mammals. Nonfishing guests will enjoy a brand new 5,000 square foot spa, snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, horseback riding and nature walks, just to name a few of the activities available. The dining room and bar, game room, gift shop, spa, pool and conference center (comfortably seating 80 people) are within a short walk of each other. Each of the 43 air-conditioned guest rooms has two comfortable queen-sized beds and a deck that overlooks the surrounding gardens. The dining room serves local and international favorites including fresh-caught yellow fin tuna, mahi-mahi and Costa Rican beef. The bar is open all day and the pool features a swim-up bar and elevated hot tub. Crocodile Bay Resort is the ideal location for family and group trips. Custom vacation packages are available year round.

From Orvis' Website:

Crocodile Bay is Orvis' favorite fishing lodge in Costa Rica. It offers superb offshore fly fishing in waters rich in sailfish and other species, as well as inshore for 20 lb. roosterfish - a challenging and exciting fish to land on light tackle. The lodge, food and boats are first class -- everything is well organized -- and it's a wonderful place to take non-anglers who will enjoy snorkeling, rainforest hikes, some of the world's best birding, and pristine rainforest.
