Golfo Dulce Lodge
The Swiss owned and operated Golfo Dulce Lodge is surrounded by the undisturbed primary lowland rainforest of the Piedras Blancas National Park, an extension of the Corcovado National Park and the clear waters of the Golfo Dulce. The remote, certified eco-lodge at Playa San Josecito is only accessible by a boat ride of about 30 minutes either from Golfito or Puerto Jimenez. The little complex of buildings is informally grouped together as a tiny village in a large landscaped garden right on the edge of the tropical rainforest and is less than 300 yards (250m) away from the rocky beach. The Golfo Dulce Lodge offers boat excursions within the Golfo Dulce and to the Esquinas River as well as guided hikes in small groups through the pristine rainforest. A local, English speaking Naturalist and/or German/English speaking Biology Students guide the boat tours and hikes. Boat excursions depend on tide and weather conditions and not all tours are available daily.
