Visit to Crocodile Bay for Wildlife Photo Workshop
I just returned from a stay at Crocodile Bay for an excellent photo workshop led by Matt and Diana Kloskowski. Crocodile Bay was a great place to stay and hold the workshop. The food was excellent. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were comfortable and well kept. You can see amazing birds and other animals simply walking around the grounds without ever leaving the resort. But you will also want to leave the resort, as the opportunities to see and photograph birds and other wildlife on the Osa Peninsula are fantastic. The guides who work with the hotel are great. Our group went out with Dennis and Diego and on several days also Jose or Alberto. I was very impressed with their ability to spot birds, monkeys, sloths and other creatures. I saw much more with the guides than I would have seen on my own. Dennis is a professional photographer and all of the guides were helpful with advice on getting better pictures. I did not do any fishing, so can't comment on that part of Crocodile Bay. I highly recommend Crocodile Bay.
Luckiest guy in the world
I was a little disappointed, Everything seemed a little dated and we didn’t catch any sailfish or marlin restaurant didn’t get lunch order right for three days and pretty much made ordering meals a challenge that it was a mystery what they were gonna bring out I do have to say the fillet was pretty good everything else was just kinda ok
Awesome Fishing Time
The people at this place go the extra mile to make you feel home and comfortable. The food is amazing! It’s a very nice fishing place And the captains and mates are really great! I will come back! The only wish I have new mattresses! That’s why only four stars instead of five!
Think twice before going!!!

This was our first time to Costa Rica and my wife and I traved there with friends. We had a outstanding time! The staff that takes care of you are so kind! The food is amazing and they are so kind to help with any special requests. We brought some fish back with us that we had caught on a couple of the days and they cooked them up just the way that we wanted! Amazing chef!!! We came here to catch rooster fish and my friend and I caught 3 in two days of fishing. I had expected a lot more, but I fish enough to know that you don't always catch a lot of fish. We did catch a few snapper on those days also. The big surprise is that we decided to go offshore fishing one day, and we ended up catching 1 dorado and 9 sailfish! That was a lot of fun and more sails than we were expecting. The guides were very nice and fun to fish with. At the end of each fishing day, they wanted you to fill out a form that said what you caught and if you have any suggestions. I thought that I would just talk to the main fishing guy about a suggestion that I had, and I guess he didn't really want any feed back, because he snapped at me for making any suggestion.(maybe he was just having a bad day) The pool was wonderful to get into after a day of fishing and swim over to the swim up bar for a drink! We did the zip line tour, the ladies went to the botanical gardens and animal preserve, and they enjoyed the spa. All of our guides were great. The reason I say to think twice is because you are going to gain weight from all of the wonderful food, you will wonder why you came back home to the snow and you and your wife are going to wonder who is going to cook for you at home. Thanks Crocodile Bay for a great trip!
Great Time at Crocodile Bay
My wife and I and another couple recently spent a week at Crocodile Bay Resort in Costa Rica. We had an outstanding time. Can't say enough good things about the staff and accomodations; fishing staff; and, the eco tour options and guides. Of course we have to mention Olympia who is the Resort "mother". She is wonderful. All four of us definitely plan to return for more fishing and eco touring. Won't come too soon. Thanks Crocodile Bay for a wonderful time.
