We speak to more and more anglers every day that are interested in traveling to warm water destinations with their wives, families and loved ones. Our favorite lodges for couples have a lot more to offer than straight forward fishing packages. The list below features destinations that may offer incredible farm-to-table cuisine, awe inspiring Mayan ruin tours, zip-treks across a jungle canopy, interpretive natural history adventures or snorkeling a vast blue hole. In short, the areas we fish offer a lot more than a simple fishing trip. Whether it’s exploring a quaint tourist town on foot, kicking your birding life list into overdrive, lazing around a seaside pool or tracking manatees with a trained expert, these destinations have a ton to offer.
Plus you may just find yourself with a much easier time booking that world class fishing trip when asking your better half if they would like to come along with you! If nothing else, you’ll at least be rooming with someone that smells a heck of a lot better than your fishing buddy! Check out the below options with an eye towards bringing that special someone in your life on your next fishing adventure.

Turneffe Flats just seems to be getting better and better all of the time!

Not to mention it may be the single highest count destination for anglers catching their first permit of any of our preferred lodges.
