Built over twenty years ago as the private retreat to one of Guatemala’s most prominent sporting families, the newly renovated Casa Vieja Lodge is sure to delight guests who have angled all over the world. Family owned and operated by Kristen and Capt. David Salazar since 2013, yet Capt. David started in Guatemala 1998 with Tim Choate, as one of the original captains of Fins ‘N Feathers.
Continual upgrading makes Casa Vieja Lodge the ultimate retreat after a day on the water. There is no surprise that the Lodge was designed by lifelong sportsmen who believe that world class fishing deserves world class accommodations – regardless of how far you are from home.
A majority of the lodge staff and Captains were employees of the original Fins ‘n Feathers Inn that began the Guatemala sportfishing industry and are all masters of guest relations as well as lifelong friends of many clients.
Your Safety is our Priority
The media has made the Zika virus, a mosquito-born virus, common knowledge. With outbreaks in South, Central, and North America many US travelers have been weary about international travel. We need to also bear in mind that the southeastern United States also has its fair share of this virus.
Here at Casa Vieja Lodge we take this threat extremely serious and want to give all of our anglers the peace of mind during their stay in Guatemala. That is why we are proud to announce that we are the first and only lodge in Central America to install the Bug Beater™ Perimeter System which is an automatic misting system for around the clock mosquito and bug control. This system was installed March 2016.
In addition, the lodge will continue fogging both indoor and outdoor with the VectorFog™ ULV coldfogger with a pesticide that is both plant and animal friendly. Accompanying this is a backpack pulverizing pump fogger that applies a residual agent over all surfaces, killing the insect that lands on it. Lastly, UV lamps are strategically placed around the lodge as an additional support system. I don’t know about you but I feel safer at the lodge than my own home!
