Zancudo Lodge Charters is a team of the record breakers: there are already over 70 IGFA in their collection. The competitive and persistent nature of their captains has gained them a brilliant reputation nobody in Costa Rica can beat.
Contender is their 32 ft saltwater fishing boat, powered by two 600 HP Yamaha engines. The vessel is equipped with all the necessary navigational electronics, and an icebox to keep the refreshments cool. There is a toilet onboard - an essential requirement when spending a day in the ocean or on the river banks. The boat can cater a group up to 4 persons.
Each trip with Zancudo Lodge Charters is personalized. You can choose between going up to 80 miles offshore to catch Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Marlin, or stay inshore Golfito to target Bluefin Tuna, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, Tripletail, Barracuda, Permit… and many more! The variety of fishing techniques is outstanding: from light and heavy tackle, trolling and jigging, spinning and popping, to bottom fishing and fly fishing. Whatever suits your needs!
In case you are not satisfied with just one day of fishing, you can choose to stay for 3 or for 4 nights in the Zancudo Lodge Hotel. “3 Persons All Inclusive” packages offer their guests to experience the hospitality of Costa Rica. These trips include: transfer to/from the hotel 3 or 4 full days of fishing with a private captain and all the equipment; accommodation at the Zancudo Lodge (double occupancy); a daily meal plan; alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages; laundry and housekeeping services; all relevant taxes; complimentary fibre optic wifi internet.
