Tarpon On at Jungle Tarpon Lodge

Let’s go Tarpon fishing in the remote Tortuguero region of Costa Rica. It holds some of the most pristine Costa Rica fishing grounds in the Caribbean. This is where legendary anglers including Zane Grey and Ernest Hemingway chased giant tarpon over 50 years ago, and they are still there!

The Perfect Combination of Wildlife, Jungle and Tarpon.

The Wildlife

More than just Costa Rica tarpon fishing!  Jungle Tarpon Lodge, bordering the Caribbean Sea and an inland lagoon, provides us access to all of the mysterious rivers of Tortuguero National Park—the Crown Jewel of the thirty-nine National Parks in Costa Rica. 

We’ll walk the beaches where three species of sea turtle return to lay their clutch of eggs; motor up the unnamed rivers into secret lagoons deep in the park to watch Howler Monkeys leap from one towering Ficus to the next…, and float by dugout canoes filled to bursting with bananas on their way to market.

The Jungle

Our “Best of Costa Rica” itinerary combines 4 days at Jungle Tarpon Lodge with a three day tour…visiting to the incredible Arenal Volcano – an active volcano that with it’s amazing “hot pools”.

During the trip, we’ll raft one of Costa Rica’s famous whitewater streams for a rush of adrenaline amidst incredible jungle scenery, traverse the Monteverde Cloud Forest, and take an incredible canopy tour at the very top of the forest (where a totally different ecosystem exists) and even visit a working quaint little artisan village, known throughout Costa Rica for its beautiful and intricate arts and crafts and souvenirs. 

The Tarpon Fishing

Costa Rica Tarpon Fishing is some of world’s finest, and in addition to the incredible offshore and river fishing for Tarpon, there many other fishing options, depending upon current conditions and the time of your trip.
