Crocodile Bay is ‘Paradise Found’. You will note the attention to detail from the beautifully hand carved front doors of the lodge to the extensive pier. It boasts Great Fishing in both deep water and in-bay. The fleet of boats is pristinely maintained and of excellent quality as is the fishing equipment. The grounds are beautiful and maintained daily with great attention to every detail. Service is 5 star as are the accommodations and activities available. It is on the Osa peninsula- and is very green – where the ocean meets the rain-forest and is home to amazing birds, butterflies, monkeys, flora and fauna. Where is the most likely place in Costa Rica to see a jaguar? The Osa Peninsula. A humpback whale? or Scarlet Macaw? The Osa Peninsula. Osa means "giant anteater" you might even see one of those on an Eco tour through Costa Rica's largest coastal rainforest.  And just about 4 to 5 hours from home plus a 45 minute commute by in-country air. Crocodile Bay is SPECTACULAR! It is a perfect place for couples, groups, or singles. Its beauty, accommodations, service and variety of fish plus a long list of additional activities make it an extraordinary slice of paradise.                                                                                                                           If you have been to Costa Rica and went to the northern area (Gold Coast) – you have not seen Costa Rica at its finest.
