We spent four nights at this magical place and it remained the top favourite all the places we visited on our two weeks in Costa Rica. We took the wonderful Nature Air flight to Golfito, which already gives you the idea of how remote and special the area surrounding Corcovado is. A taxi and a 30 min boat ride later... More

My husband and I spent six nights in this wonderful place in a deluxe bungalow. Amazing host, small and intimate lodge, spacious accommodations, wonderful food, great nature trails and wildlife, beautiful mangrove tour, warm and swim-able ocean, simply perfect! Thank you Esther and your staff for a beautiful holiday.

We had a very delightful stay with hummingbirds, toucans, macaws and butterflies flying around the bungalows and coatis and agoutis strolling in the park! We also made a boat-trip to mangrove forest and even saw more animals: capuchins, boat-billed heron, blue herons ... Rooms were tidy and clean and offer much space, the catering delicous!

This was probably our favorite nature lodge. It is located a good 30 minute boat ride to the inside of the Gulf, where tourism has not really overdeveloped. So after half an hour of only ocean and jungle, you arrive at this silent magical place. You are greeted by the owner in person. We spent 5 days, exploring the many... More

A secret jungle lodge located in an area that has not been polluted by mass tourism. Amazing ocean, rainforest, simply a perfect nature getaway. We can easily recommend. Special for those looking for a lodge away from the touristy and sometimes fake destinations.

The area is less known tan the neighbor Corcovado National Park, which we visited recently. However, equal in wildlife and scenery plus the fact that since it is less touristy, it keeps this authentic charm, a mix of real adventure, non touristy and almost laid back in time a bit. The trip to the lodge itself is a wonderful adventure.... 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
