Went down to Silver King Lodge with my son for April vacation. The place is incredible. Great staff, comfortable air conditioned rooms, awesome food, and incredible fishing. We boated 19 fish on one of our days and lost count of how many we hooked. Take advantage of heading up river to fish the back water lagoons for snook, guapote, and...

The Silver King lodge is a Tarpon fisher's paradise. A short local flight on a small plane from San Jose has you landing on the jungle airstrip in a little over 30 mins - a flight that offers up incredible views of the active volcanoes nearby. Upon arrival to the lodge after a short up river boat river, you are...

Coming all the way from South Africa, my brother and I booked a trip at the SCI show in Las Vegas last year. Bob was great in keeping us up to date with our booking. We had a remarkable trip, very well organised and the lodge staff were great. The fishing was unbelievable too!

Every aspect of our trip to the Silver King Lodge was a pleasure. Each member of the staff was caring and friendly while handling their jobs completely from initial inquiry to delivering us back to the plane.

My wife and I visited silver king lodge 23rd January. We were supposed to be there at the beginning of January however the brilliant Bob contacted us to say there had been an unseasonal low pressure and the river was flooded and the chance of catching Tarpon was slim. This is just one example of how this operation will go...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Silver King Lodge is a sport fishing lodge in the renown Barra del Colorado Wildlife Preserve / eco-park some 140 miles north of San Jose, located near the mouth of the Rio del Colorado - focusing on the Atlantic tarpon, a fantastic game fish known for spectacular leaps and its hard-fighting nature. We also offer opportunities to fish for a wide variety of fresh-water, salt-water inshore, and salt-water off-shore fish - including tuna. The Silver King Lodge features 12 double-occupancy rooms, all air conditioned - with free satellite internet / WiFi; satellite TV and a plethora of amenities that includes our outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, massages, bar with inclusive local liquors, local beer and house wines - as well as a culinary staff that will make sure you are ready to bring in that 175 lb tarpon! All meals are included. And you can pack light for the jungle - our housekeeping staff provides free, same-day laundry service! Our renown guides are ready with our provided rods and tackle aboard our own ocean-capable boats - equipped with marine radios and fish finders - to take you to where the fish are... Because that's why you came! We include arrival car service at Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, then either charter air service (a short 35 minute flight) or car / boat transportation (about 5 scenic hours) to and from the lodge and airport transportation back to Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose. We can also arrange hotel lodging in San Jose. ... more   less
