Rio Parismina  Located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica is a  year-round experience of a lifetime and one that will leave you with wonderful memories. Rio Parismina is a resort lodge built on 50 acres of lush jungle to beach on the banks of the famous Parismina River. It offers luxury accommodations, 5-star dining, and a wealth of amenities in one of the world's finest Tarpon and Snook sport fishing areas. Rio Parismina Lodge is unusual in its combination of upscale accommodations with immediate access to river/estuary and ocean fishing.


The luxury accommodations offer twelve spacious, air-conditioned units each accommodating two guests and offering amenities that include double-bowl vanities, over-size tiled showers, ceiling fans, and a large walk-in closet area plus comfortable beds and seating. There is also crystal clear swimming pool with waterfall, and Jacuzzi. Rio Parismina’s tackle shop is there to fill your needs for fishing. There is an open-air main lodge that houses the bar, a recreation area and dining area where scrumptious meals are served. Before dinner "Bocas" or appetizers are served on the verandah or by the open bar. After Bocas, you will experience unforgettable dining prepared by a gourmet chef and served in comfortable and relaxed family style : dinners may include seafood and meats, local fares, exotic fresh fruits, pastas and heavenly desserts, all presented beautifully and with service worth writing home about. After dinner, you might enjoy visiting with other guests about the day's adventures or a visit to the nearby National Park to observe giant sea-turtles. The Hospitality at Rio Parismina is unmatched.


You'll find newer, better and more stable boats for ocean fishing in the choppy ocean waters. 21-foot modified V-hull ocean craft are custom designed and built especially for Parismina's ocean conditions. This means you have a better opportunity with Tarpon. The specially built ocean craft give you the option of fishing a virgin reef a few miles off-coast for Snapper, Tuna, Wahoo, King Mackerel and other major game-fish.  If you’ve never fished for Tarpon and that is your quarry, your guide will instruct you on the best methods for success. It is not the only fish – just the prize that most Rio Parismena anglers want to catch.  The Parismina River happens to be the river where 4 WORLD RECORD Snook have been caught.
