If you love to fish and want to enjoy tropical climate the Bahia la Tortuga lodge is somewhere you should visit. It is truly a piece of paradise. My husband and I were there earlier this year but the fishing was poor and despite John’s efforts we only were able to catch a rooster fish, one sailfish and some sierra mackerel. We were so impressed with the atmosphere, food and overall hospitality of John and his wife Angie and their fantastic staff we decided to return.
John and his fleet of fishing guides are uncanny in their ability to find fish, if fish are there, and see that you are able to bring them to the boat. Angie and her helpers keep the grounds and the lodge immaculate. Angie is a phenomenal cook and always presents the food like an artist. If you have special needs or requests every effort is made to meet them. Our second trip was like coming back to family. This time we caught 24 sailfish, 8 Dorado, 6 sharks and a marlin; all in six days fishing. We can only thank everyone at the lodge for a great time and say “We cannot wait to see you again next year!”
