Crocodile Bay Lodge is the finest fishing and adventure tour destination in Costa Rica. The waters surrounding the lodge are inhabited by a large variety of fish and now adding tarpon to the list just makes it that much better!

A Visit to Ascension Bay : Permit on the Fly

At Leisure Time Travel, we’re committed to seeing that our anglers are in the right place, at the right time, on their dream fish …
 Ascension Bay offers the angler one of the best places in the world to catch a permit on the fly and is one of the finest saltwater flats’ fisheries in the world. Ascension Bay has a rare combination of environmental ingredients which create the ideal foundations for an abundance of wildlife. The flats of Ascension Bay are surrounded by a series of small freshwater springs and creeks which feed the brackish mangrove estuaries. These areas are used as feeding grounds for flats and reef species. Along the coast, a complex chain of submerged islands and little cays provide the ideal habitat for a shallow-water coral ecosystem. The coral heads absorb the brunt of the pounding waves, which creates a tranquil setting in the flats even if the outside ocean is rough.
