Rio Colorado Lodge and Sportfishing Tours:
The Rio Colorado Lodge is built on the banks of the Colorado River, right at its mouth where it empties into the sea and where fishing is frequently the best. The whole complex is built on stilts, elevating it from the ground and is under cover, shielding it from the rain. Rooms are double roofed, providing a cooling, insulating effect for your comfort. Even the walkways and dock are roofed for your convenience. The hotel boasts eighteen comfortable rooms with air conditioning (the only East Coast lodge with air-conditioned rooms). All rooms have private baths, hot showers, electric fans and daily maid. Meals are served family style, all you care to eat, and the cuisine at the Rio Colorado Lodge has earned high praise from ardent fishermen from around the world.
There is a comfortable recreation room with game tables, a new video room with satellite TV, telefax equipment, a well stocked tackle shop, ample outdoor lounging areas, and a very interesting zoo. There is a fully stocked bar with drinks at reasonable prices. Daily Happy Hour is from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., when all rum drinks and soft drinks are “on the house.” Both tarpon and snook can be taken any month of the year, and the Rio Colorado Lodge is the only fishing resort in the area that remains open year around.
