Complete Tarponville fishing packages include accommodations in an air conditioned, clean and comfortable beachfront lodge located just outside the village of Manzanillo.  Due to being located in a Wildlife Refuge, there is no vehicle access directly to the lodge and a walk of 300 yards is required.

Each room at the lodge has air conditioning, two beds, ceiling fans, a private bathroom, and a beachfront view of one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the Caribbean. The rooms are located only a few yards from the waters edge on a beautiful beach perfect for swimming, snorkelling, or just plain relaxing. The combination of the ceiling fans and consistent ocean breezes make sleeping quite comfortable. The lodge is located in the middle of the Manzanillo/Gandoca Wildlife Refuge, one of the most beautiful places in the entire area. Howler monkeys, sloths, a ridiculous number of bird species, and other wildlife can all be viewed from your front porch in the mornings and evenings.

All meals at the lodge will be prepared by local cooks, and the menu will include such items as snapper, local fruits and vegetables, and other local delicacies. The Lodge bar and kitchen area stocked with complimentary beer, rum, sodas, and mixers for any alcohol that you would like to purchase at the duty free store in San Jose and bring with you to the lodge. A normal fishing day will start with breakfast at 6:00 AM. You will depart for the fishing grounds by 7:00am (20-30 minute ride).  Normally you will return by noon for a prepared lunch, return to fish at about 2:00 PM until dark. This schedule allows you to be on the water during the prime fishing hours. Fishing aside, this is a gorgeous Caribbean destination loaded with activities options and numerous things to see and do.

Other activities in this spectacular area, fun regardless of whether or not you are an angler, include: wild dolphin watching tours, ocean kayaking with wild dolphin, river kayaking, guided jungle hikes, snorkeling and Scuba diving, horseback riding, indigenous cultural tours, botanical gardens, beachcombing the miles of undeveloped white sand beaches, and the legendary Caribbean night life in Puerto Viejo.
