Dorado Cua Lodge is located in the Province of Corrientes. The Ibera Marshlands is a natural sanctuary consisting of 350,000 acres, a paradise for dorado fishing. The area is famous for the endless species of wetland birds and wildlife. After 30 years of fishing this reserve, Mario Battiston, owner and operator of Dorado Cua Lodge chose this exact spot to build his fishing lodge in the heart of the Isoro’ wetlands.
Accommodations are in spacious double rooms with en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and daily maid service. Meals are served in the main dining hall. The chef prepares traditional Argentine and international dishes.
The fishing program starts at first light every day to take advantage of the early morning bite. Anglers either pack a lunch and stay out all day or return to the comforts of the lodge during the heat of day for lunch and siesta and then back in the afternoon to fish until sundown. The guides know the waters well and move to different fishing areas throughout the week to give angling guests new water to fish and provide them with the best opportunities. Different areas are fished throughout the week, the Parana Tributaries, the Esteros Isoro’ and the Corrientes River.
Guided fishing is done from aluminum skiffs with 40hp outboard motors, 2 anglers per boat.
The season runs from October through March, their summer months.

Getting There: Your trip starts in Buenos Aires, your flight will be met by the English speaking transfer staff to take you to your hotel (if necessary) and any other necessary point in your itinerary. Most folks like to spend a couple of days in Buenos Aires on either the front or back end of the trip. Travel to the lodge is most often done in a comfortable overnight sleeper bus that arrives at the San Isidro stop well before dawn of the first fishing day where you are met by the lodge staff with 4wd vehicles for the 30 minute drive to the lodge. Your fishing begins after breakfast.
There is also a private vehicle transfer or charter flights available for an additional charge.
