Golfo Dulce lodge had all the things we wanted. Situated on the edge of the sea and the edge of the jungle, with beautiful gardens. So many good things : Friendly staff, a warm welcome each evening. Butterflies Jungle noises, Scarlet macaws,birds and animals abound. This lodge is very special. Esther has been devoted to preserving the natural habitat. Her... More

We have just returned from a ten-day stay in Costa Rica, which began with four days at Golfo Dulce Lodge. What a wonderful place! The lodge is remote, so do not choose this destination if you want distractions from nature (or a town bar to walk to after dinner). At Golfo Dulce Lodge you will live in the forest in... More

We stayed at Golfo Dulce Lodge from 10-13/2013. A truly marvelous place for anyone who wants to step out of his cabin and walk around whole day in the forest (both primary and secondary growth). Don't worry about the boat transportation: very well arranged. Food is excellent, home made. Cabins are very spatious, clean, good beds, in a very nice... More

You need to go to Golfito first. The Lodge has no access by road nor air. All boat. We parked the car in GOLFITO and were picked up by the guide and captain. The transfer takes around 30 minutes. The lodge is situated in a remote rainforest next to Piedras Blancas Park. The property has several hundred yards of beachfront.... More

This place is absolutely recommended. Located on the ocean inside a large Gulf, it is the true and real rainforest Experience we had expected. We stayed in a beautiful cottage located under large rainforest trees. We could see tons of birds from our deck. We saw one species of wild boar, the Coati Mundi which we had never seen before,...

My husband and I returned last week from a short Costa Rica vacation that included six days at Golfo Dulce Lodge. We do not remember having a more interesting and enjoyable vacation. The fun began at lunch on the first day when a white-crested parrot swooped through the open air dining room to land in the rafters, a mythical-looking basilisk... More

I could not have been happier with my stay at the Golfo Dulce Lodge. For a naturalist like myself, it was an absolute joy. For those of you looking for somewhere completely away from crowds, surrounded by wildlife, and away from touristy types of things, then this is the place for you. Out here you are surrounded by a beautiful... More

Stunning location. We loved everything about our time there. The hotel is located on the coast, with a private access to the beautiful coast of Golfo Dulce, a natural oceanic bay. The tropical rainforest is all around. The lodge is located amidst a large tropical rainforest and on the sea. The wildlife is amazing too. We saw the red macaws,... More

One of the great nature experiences anywhere. The wonder starts with the boat ride and the entry into the well-hidden realm of the lodge under the great canopy. We immediately lolled in the hammock and observed macaw pairs feeding overhead, birds and giant butterflies flying by. There are fine guides for day tours into the magnificent 150 feet canopy of...

We stayed at Golfo Dulce Lodge. We had heard amazing things about the area. When we got to Golfito, we were picked up by a boat that took us to the ldge, located in a gorgeous bay, surrounded by nothing else than tropical rainforests and beach. The beach is not the nciest one, but one has to understand that Golfo... More
