Costa Rica Fishing Trips – The Jungle Tarpon Classic
This is one of our most popular Costa Rica fishing trips, for lots of reasons. Jungle Tarpon lodge sits between the Caribbean Sea and the entrance of Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica’s world renowned jungle preserve. This Roadless Jungle contains Saltwater Crocodiles, sloths, Manatees, Jaguars, 3 species of monkeys and one of the world great bird populations. And fortuitously for us, these secret jungle rivers and amazing Caribbean ocean waters have delivered giant Tarpon and world record Snook since the days of Zane Grey and Ernest Hemingway. It is still a great and lightly trafficked fishery.
The Jungle Tarpon Classic features transfers from your San Jose Hotel, all meals while at Jungle Tarpon Lodge plus an evening cerveza and or water/soda happy hour…plus of course 6 bid days of fishing for native Tarpon of Tortugero. You’ll fish after lunch on your first day, and each full day while at Jungle Tarpon Lodge you’ll head out after breakfast, return for lunch and a little “Tico time”, followed by another trip out (usually in the smaller boats exploring the rivers near the lodge).
Transfers are via complimentary courtesy van, and you’ll cross the Monteverde Cloud Forest, cross raging whitewater rivers like the Pacuare or Raventezon, then finally travel through the intriguing communities near the Banana fields as you make your wake your way to Cano Blanco to meet your guides and be transferred the final few miles to the lodge by boat. All the way home you will fondly remember your Costa Rica fishing trips.
