This is a special place. A palace in the middle of the jungle. The staff are excellent and friendly. The tours through the jungle river tributaries are amazing. I would definitely go back. You don't expect air conditioning, great food and hot showers in the middle of nowhere. If you want to get away from it all and you like fishing or exploring nature this is the spot.
Amazing Nicaraguan Adventure
Avaliou em 21 de março de 2022
We arranged for a Tarpon fishing trip that was supposed to happen in March of 2020. Unfortunately, Covid struck and we were unable to make the trip. We were able to reschedule for this March. Normally, there would be a charter flight from San Jose, Costa Rica to Nicaragua, then a short boat ride to the lodge. However, the charter airport was still closed due to Covid. Hence, we had a three hour drive and a two hour boat ride to get to the lodge. It was actually an outstanding experience! Driving through the rainforest, banana and pineapple plantations, seeing the humble means of the local populations, learning about the culture, was all extremely interesting! The accommodations and staff at the lodge was exceptional. As was our fishing guide and companion, Franklin! We enjoyed our visits and meals with Dr. Lopez. His knowledge and background is fascinating. Although the Tarpon fishing wasn’t as good as we had hoped (there were many fish surfacing, but they weren’t hungry for some reason), we still got in a lot of hard core fishing. A special day excursion to fish Gaupote (Rainbow Bass) was particularly interesting. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone traveling to the lodge. If you are going to the lodge for a environmental or naturalist experience, you will not be disappointed. The flora and fauna was amazing. If you are looking for a truly great adventure, I sincerely recommend a trip to Rio Indio Lodge.

After a 2 year trip delay (covid), we finally made it to Rio Indio Lodge and we were not disappointed! The airport in Graytown was closed so we had to drive to the Sarapiqui River and then take a boat downriver to the lodge. This took a lot more time than the usual puddle-jumper flight, but the reward was getting to see much more of the beautiful countryside. The lodge itself is beautiful and the service is excellent. Doc and the staff will make sure that you have everything that you want or need. We enjoyed the jungle trip to fish for Guapote and we caught several nice fish. The Tarpon bite was slow while we were there, but we still managed to get a couple and several nice Jacks too! If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing jungle vacation, or an adventurous jungle excursion, I highly recommend the Rio Indio!!
No Where Else Like Rio Indio Lodge

Rio Indio Lodge in Nicaragua is an adventure of a lifetime, whether you are there for the fishing or the adventure. As a wife and non-fisherman, I was entertained beyond my wildest beliefs, with the river and mangrove tours (day and nighttime.) The self guided jungle tours comes complete with easy walking via cleared paths for access and sightseeing. The food was delicious being fresh catch and traditional Nicaraguan cuisine, the best fried queso and pan seared snook? Alfredo has done tremendous work for the local people, providing and income and opportunities that otherwise would be difficult due to the river only access for travel. This is a must see place to travel with the kindest people you will ever meet.
Father - Son fishing trip adventure.

We began planning this trip in January of 2021, but had to re-schedule for reasons obvious to anyone living in the present day. What we received for our patience was the trip of a lifetime that will forever be welcomed in our memories. We traveled down the Río San Juan, from San Carlos and we’re greeted upon arrival by the one and only Dr. López, backed by his incredible staff with a welcome coconut rum in hand. We spent 3 days fishing the Rio Indio, Rio San Juan, Lagunas Ebo and Barca, and every creek known to our expert guide Porfidio Durte. We caught giant Guapote, Bluegill, Mudfish, and one Tiger Bass. We were unable to fish for Tarpon in the Caribbean due to high winds and unstable ocean conditions, but the experience of fishing with Porfidio was once in a lifetime. His knowledge of the area was unparalleled, and we feel truly blessed for the jungle safari/ father-son fishing trip. Dr. López is the most the gracious and warm host we have ever met. His clockwork schedule and supreme love of the Rio Indio Lodge knows no boundaries. If we could give 10 stars we would. Do yourself the favor of trekking to this once in a lifetime location, warm staff, and exhilarating experience. Highly recommended!!
