The Lodge

About the Lodge

Our Lodge is surrounded by the beauty of Costa Rican wildlife, verdant tropical foliage and our tranquil beachfront and river banks. Ideally bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Rio Coto, we offer our guests the perfect setting for an idyllic luxurious vacation accompanied by your choice of a variety of thrill seeking activities. Our guests can choose amongst a list of popular sports such as world class surfing, standup paddle boarding, premier catch and release sport fishing and kayaking or a variety of day tours indigenous to the Golfo Dulce such as a visit to a botanical garden and a wildlife sanctuary, oceanfront or trail horseback riding, a zip-line canopy flight through the rainforest, or bird watching or hiking through our national park. Those guests who prefer to enjoy the tranquility of the resort can spend time relaxing by the saltwater pool, taking a stroll in our tropical fruit garden, receiving a deep tissue massage in our dedicated massage room, exercising in our weight room, practicing yoga or pilates in the open air, exploring the town with our beach bicycles, enjoying the beauty of the Osa Peninsula waters on our standup paddle boards, Hobie pedal fishing kayaks or windsurfing equipment or simply relishing the vastness of the Pacific Ocean from the privacy of our Zancudo Beach.

World renowned as the “best fishing lodge in Costa Rica”, the Lodge continues to strengthen its position by annually updating and renewing its property, on and off the water. Through the encouragement of our guests, the Lodge has now expanded its offerings to new markets such as families, honeymooners, cooperate events, health retreats, weddings, and more.

Gamefisher Restaurant

Based on the principals of water, farm and land to table, the Zancudo Lodge’s Gamefisher Restaurant masterfully blends the natural and bountiful resources of our ideal location in Costa Rica with our genuine love of scrumptious and healthy cuisine . Because of where we are and what we do, the Lodge is in a fortunate and strategic position to showcase this triple threat concept as one of our primary Lodge offering. No other property in Costa Rica has made such a conscious effort and placed such an extreme focus on bringing these ideals to our guests’ tables.

Our fleet’s fresh catch is processed daily on our Lodge dock and the immediate transfer to the kitchen upholds the “chain of freshness” which is so important in every aspect of our cuisine. Our garden and orchard provide our guests with the freshest organic produce, from fresh ginger to ripe plantains to green papayas and we devise a carefully planned planting schedule to grow almost every ingredient while sourcing local farmers to fill the gaps. For the highest meat quality, we have started raising our own pigs on local organic coconut, rice and pineapples. Our dry aging program escalates the caliber of our grass fed beef to ensure that
every bite is 5 star worthy. From our boat lunches to our nightly multi-course dinner, every meal is carefully planned and designed daily based on the freshest availability of ingredients and our guests’ requests.

Our restaurant staff at the Zancudo Lodge is proudly homegrown and professionally
educated. The Gamefisher’s menu concept is the brainchild of Chef Cosmo Goss (US 2015 Forbes – 30 Under 30) who provides on-site semi-annual training to our talented Zancudo crew. Chef Goss masterfully blends local Costa Rican flavors with his innovative cuisine resulting in the creation of a sophisticated yet hearty menu especially designed for our most discriminating guests.
