I wanted to thank you and give you a little feedback from our trip to Crocodile Bay:
This was a FANTASTIC journey. Everything that you set up for us was flawless and perfect- not one tiny snag end to end, which in my world has never happened....especially with so many little pieces like transportation/transfers etc. Next time I will book my air travel nonstop from SJO to our final US airport but other than that there is nothing else I would change for the travel package. I will alter a few things we take next time but this was the dry run to figure things out. I would like to return toward the end of FEB w my wife.
I could write a full review of the the entire trip but I am sure you have heard all that before....the great staff at croc bay etc - they are so terrific at making you feel like you are the only and most important guest.
The aquatic wildlife both inshore and offshore to me was the most amazing piece but the rain forest was awesome as well. The terrifying zip line I was dreading wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be - but my daughter loved it and that was what it was all about. We have a thousand or so photos to go through- monkeys, sloths, butterflies, fish, whales, dolphins birds, cliffs, trees, huge surf etc
The second most amazing thing was how few bug bites I got - 3 in a week! I get more than that in an evening in my own backyard. Considering we did the zip line and the all day forest tour (in shorts) I was pleasantly surprised. I did however stand on a small ant hill while taking a picture of my my daughter so I don’t count those 3 - that was my fault.
Sailfish and roosters were fun, but seeing a 500 pound Marlin explode out of the water and take our gear to Panama was a site to behold. Catching countless little mahis was fun and putting 29 tuna on the board was pretty amazing too. The coolest thing was that we worked areas offshore that were so full of life - no less than 200 dolphins and game fish herding bait into balls and then feeding and jumping along with hundreds of sea birds - sights you only see on a Nat Geo program.
The story of stories is that my daughter and I both battled an enormous tuna estimated to push 150# for over an hour. Each of us having to take breaks while the other jumped in and tried our best to whip what we named the Diablo Tuna. However in an effort to keep us positioned the captain accidentally ran over our line and cut off the fish that was still showing no signs of tiring after countless blistering runs. Disappointing - but also the most amazing fish I have ever encountered.
Getting long winded here but thank you once again for making this a very smooth professionally arranged amazing journey. We even got stuck in Charlotte NC for an overnight and had an great time exploring downtown and found some spots to revisit someday.
Hats off to everyone involved that made this trip so easy and very memorable.
Look forward to our return in 9 months.
Crocodile Bay Resort is a Jewel!!
Wow, what a great trip to Crocodile Bay resort. Everyone connected with the property was superb. From the fishing guides to the desk staff to the cooks and waitresses, it could not have been any better. Everyone fell all over themselves to make sure we had a wonderful experience and we did. And oh by the way, the fishing was excellent!
Amazing Fishing Vacation
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Crocodile Bay. The staff was wonderful and the grounds were beautiful. The Fishing was amazing!! We are already planning a trip back!! Lisa from Lynch Travel was fantastic, she made sure all of our travel arrangements from start to finish were taken care. We didn't have to worry about anything but having a great time and fishing!! I would recommend Crocodile Bay Resort to anyone.
Perfect Family Vacation
Our family had an amazing time at Crocodile Bay in early April 2021. We were extremely impressed by the service (wonderful staff), and the quality and quantity of accommodations at this cool little place. Special thank you to Diego, Diego, Dennis, Leandro, Anthony, Johnny, Jose, Caroliy, Danielle, and all the other staff who were incredible hosts, guides, servers, and friends during our stay there.
In addition to the awesome staff, our highlights were:
- The rooster fishing was incredible. On our best day, we had 4 of us fishing and caught 25 rooster fish (plus many others to keep and have them prepare us for dinner). SO much fun with Leandro and Johnny as our guides.
- All of the eco tours we did (wildlife tour, ziplining, kayaking, chocolate farm, snorkeling, etc.) were a ton of fun and the guides were incredibly knowledgeable and fun to spend the day(s) with.
- The food was outstanding. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner - we loved every meal. SO impressed also by the lunches they packed for us - so many options for DELICIOUS sandwhiches, wraps, and salads custom-made for you in your cooler for fishing/daily excursion, and a cooler filled with ice cold drinks and fresh watermelon and pineapple. SO good!
- The wildlife on the property was like nothing I've ever experienced before. Macaws, monkeys, sloths, butterflies, and yes, crocodiles - all right there!
- We loved the swimming pool and swim-up bar, especially after a day of fishing.
- The rooms were perfectly cozy, comfortable, cool, and clean.
So many great memories made. I would definitely go back and I know my family feels the same way. Thank you Crocodile Bay for a vacation we will never forget!
Returning in 2022
