Jungle Tarpon Lodge

Fly Fishing Trip and Lodge Details:

Jungle Tarpon Lodge is Costa Rica's premier sports fishing and adventure travel destination. Specializing in intimate groups of anglers and adventures, they explore this amazing region in search of the "trip of a lifetime!"

Costa Rica fishing is world renown on the rivers, lagoons and coastline of the Caribbean. Tarpon is the primary target with daily offshore and lagoon charters complimented with small tackle species under the shade of the rainforest canopy.

The Fishing:

For anglers on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, Tarpon (megalops atlanticus) is the primary target. Nothing can quite compare to 100 pounds of pure muscle leaping from the water, making you and your drag scream! The battleground for this fishing adventure is both the ocean via comfortable offshore boats and within the jungle lagoons on flat bottom john boats.

Catch and release fishing for all Tarpon, after a quick snapshot these creatures are free to fight again. Most are caught with conventional tackle but on occasion the fly fishing opportunity will present itself. The itineraries are optimized so that every angler gets the trip that he's looking for. The silver king is complimented with small tackle river species in the afternoon shade of the rainforest canopy. In this amazing jungle environment, you never know if the next hook up will be a ferocious guapote or a giant tarpon cruising the lagoons. Angling starts at 6:00 AM and can continue into the evening with Surfcasting for those who can’t get enough. Many other fish are available such as Tuna, Wahoo, Permit and Jacks from our offshore boats. Species such as the snook above and the snapper left, make excellent table fare.

Season information:

Tarpon are resident all year, but best months are February to April, and October and November.
