A relatively small and cosy lodge designed primarily for fishing, Despedida Lodge is built in the style of a log cabin and has a family atmosphere to it. It is located across the river and between the Estancia Maria Behety Lodge and the downstream from the more exclusive Kau Tapen. Despedida guests and Maria Behety guests share some of the pools on the river but on an alternate day basis to ensure privacy and exclusivity.
The lodge can accommodate a maximum of 6 guests staying in large twin rooms, each with private ensuite facilities. There is plenty of room to store gear and equipment. There is a spacious dining room and lounge where you can relax and enjoy a beer after a full day on the river. Large windows in the lodge offer panoramic views across the extensive open countryside.
The husband and wife team have been running the lodge for over fifteen years with their son who also guide. They take great pride in making you feel like a very special fishing group. The guides are long-established and know the river and the pools extremely well and know how to look after the dedicated fly-fisherman which is why many anglers are repeat visitors.
The lodge also has a large satellite TV and a sound system. Traditional Argentine cuisine, a fine selection of wines and made-to-order breakfasts all help make your trip successful and memorable. All meals, breakfast lunch and evening dinner, are served back at the lodge. The lodge is designed for fishing and does not offer guided non-angling activities.
Each guest room is equipped with a phone line. Internet wifi Connection is available in the lodge from 2016 but bring your own laptop or tablet.
