My husband and I recently returned from our honeymoon at Crocodile Bay. Despite being evacuated due to Hurricane Otto 4 days into our 8-day vacation and never stepping foot on a boat (the Coast Guard cancelled fishing the 4 days we were there), we had the ABSOLUTE BEST time ever!!! Upon arriving at the resort, we were welcomed like family...

We spent 7 nights at Crocodile Bay in June, 2016. We had an incredible time! Fished 3 days (1 day inshore, the other 2 offshore). Had some nice rooster fish and other stuff on the inshore day. One of the offshore days was slow, only 1 sailfish seen, but the 3rd day was awesome! We ended up with 4 yellowfin...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Crocodile Bay Resort last week for several days and had a blast. The facilities are top notch and the location is just amazing. The hotel picks you up from the tiny Puerto Jimenez airport and 5 minutes later you are welcome with a chilled cocktail at the front desk. Beautiful location with...

Thank you Robert for your post and your kind words about our fishing fleet and crew. When we had to refuse you and your roommate service so soon after you arrived and remove you from the property due to your poor behavior, it was a nice surprise to see that positive comment about the fishing staff.

There are few places in the world that match the charm, character, tropical beauty & adventure of Crocodile Bay & Osa Peninsula. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Everything marvels beyond expectations - staff, fishing, tours, wildlife, hotel spa, Puerto Jimenez culture, locals, and small town nightlife. Your catch of the day, and others, are prepared as you like and better than ever....

From first moment we arrived to the last of our stay, I saw my father get stronger, more alert and happier. It was not just the entire staff's willingness to help, it was their follow-through on...
