The town itself sits close to the water with dramatic views over the bay. There are numerous hotels, restaurants, bars and shops in Golfito to cater to the visitors that visit.
Fishing is the number one thing to do while in Golfito. Sportmen come from all over the world to test their skills in the rich waters of the Golfo Dulce. While sailfish is the most sought after catch, roosterfish, Culebra snapper, dorado, and wahoo are also fun and tasty additions to your dinner plate.
