About The Fishing
88 species of fish populate these waters but the star is the highly aerobatic Dorado. Other species are also taken with a fly or lure, Boga, Boca Amarga, and Pira Pita. Batel Lodge is part of a working ranch that breeds cattle. Any given day you’ll see our “gauchos”(cowboys) on horseback working in the fields.
