San Jose

If you need to spend a night in San Jose we suggest the Holiday Inn Express which is conveniently located one mile from the international airport. They offer a 24-hour shuttle from the airport to hotel. There is an outdoor pool and fitness center. If you prefer to be in downtown San Jose or would like to spend a number of days in San Jose please advise and we will make suitable suggestions for you and your group. The Holiday Inn also offer foreign currency exchange, mobile phone rental, free local calls, and complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access.


Puerto Jimenez

Remember, this is “your” vacation and everyone has different needs and desires. We encourage you express to us what style of accommodation suits you best. This is one of the beautiful things about booking your fishing trip with Tropic Fins. We are flexible and will find the most suitable location for you and your guests. Pricing will be adjusted accordingly if you choose a hotel different than the one we have based our package pricing on. Breakfasts and dinners are provided at your hotel. Lunches are provided on the boat. We will always give your our honest opinion in regards to standards and services offered by each hotel.

Agua Dulce Lodge

Agua Dulce Lodge is located right next door to our home and on one of the prettiest beaches on the Osa Peninsula. It is very convenient to have our guests located near our home. If you need anything at all we are close by. Cory can swing by in the evening and have a drink with you and talk about plans for the coming day. We love to bring the entire family over and enjoy a dinner together. Relax and enjoy the good life only 50 steps from high tide. Sit on your private balcony and appreciate the abundant wildlife, cool off in the large pool or hit the beach and work on your tan. The beach is quite isolated and you can walk for miles in either direction. There is an open air restaurant on the premises, it is located on the second level of the main building and provides a beautiful view and nice breeze. Staff are friendly and accommodating.


A 50% deposit is required upon booking or 90 days prior to trip date. Full payment is required 60 days prior to trip date. A full refund will be provided if a written cancellation is received 60 days prior to trip date. If written cancellation is received 30-60 days prior to trip and we are able to re-book your dates, a full refund minus any discount required to re-book the trip dates will be given. There are no refunds on cancellations 30 days or less prior to trip date.


A fishing lodge running 10 to 20 boats needs to be tightly structured. You fish on lodge time schedules. Running a single boat charter allows us to design a trip especially for you and your guests. With options on accommodations in San Jose and on the Osa, we will put you up in a hotel to match your expectations and needs. In Puerto Jimenez you can enjoy your dinner within a few steps of your cabin, or experience some of the local flavors at the variety of restaurants in town.The fishing day will be tailored to your liking. Hard-core anglers can choose to be the first on the water or the last to come in. For those wanting a more relaxed day, we can start whenever you make it down to the boat. How does a sit down breakfast listening to the monkeys and parrots sound? Maybe you would prefer breakfast burritos and coffee on the water? For lunch, sandwich or pizza, wraps or fried chicken? Whatever you want we can arrange it for you.

You will hear stories of captains detouring people from fishing inshore, or not willing to change methods or locations when the fishing is slow. My goal is to fish for what you want to catch, and use my experience in all areas to put you on action throughout the day. I am very much a member of the “no yelling” school of guiding. My goal is to make your trip productive and fun. At trip end my hope is that your expectations have been exceeded, you have a smile on your face, tired arms, and some knowledge to have improved your fishing skill.

In the future I will be exploring the addition of adventure packages, such as night fishing and overnight trips to Drake Bay (on the NW side of the Osa), and possibly Panama. If you are interested in exploring these options they are available at an extra cost. In the near future we will have our own cabinas (cabins) to personalize our service even further.

Hope to see you soon.
