Directions to Golfito

Golfito is located in the South Pacific Region on the north side of the Golfo Dulce and is the only city in Costa Rica that sits inside the borders of protected land.  The small town was once a major port used by the United Fruit Company to ship bananas all over the world. Today most of the action in the waters of the Golfo Dulce is from fishing or scuba boats heading out for a fun day on the water. 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. Local tour companies offer kayak and boat tours if fishing is not your cup of tea.

While most visitors come for the great fishing, there are some things to do on land as well. Piedras Blancas National Park is a great place to spend the day walking among a primary forests of mostly evergreen trees. This unique ecosystem is also considered one of the best places in Costa Rica for bird-watching.

As you might suspect there are great seafood restaurants in Golfito that carry the days freshest fish. Most of these restaurants site on the shores of the gulf and enjoy great views and cool ocean breezes.
