This exciting new purpose built is built in one of the most productive, underfished areas in Costa Rica.
This lodge has been built by a very passionate, experienced overseas angler from the UK who has visited many lodges and understands exactly what the travelling angler requires.
The fishing on this trip will cover both bluewater and inshore as we have access to not only 2 centre console boats but also have a 35 foot Cabo Sport Fishing Yacht powered by twin 450 HP engines.
The standard trip will be a combination of offshore fishing for the many sailfish, tuna and marlin and inshore fishing for Cubera, Roosterfish and Snook to name but a few. A truly unique location and a chance for you to be one of the first to experience this amazing location.
The lodge was purpose-built to accommodate anglers who wish to have a peaceful, social fishing trip.
Southern Drake Lodge is located on a picturesque mountaintop in Drake Bay with unrivalled views across the rainforest and national park as well as Drake Bay itself. Our goal is that our guests enjoy absolute tranquility and harmony with the surrounding nature.
It is designed with a rustic and country style, without leaving aside the conveniences of A/C, hot water and wifi internet. The place is also famous for its simple yet delicious cuisine.
This promises to be a firm favourite among our clients and will soon become one of our most popular trips.
