Golfo Dulce Lodge

Golfo Dulce, Costa RicaIf you are looking for comfort in the jungle, Golfo Dulce Lodge is the right place for you. Surrounded by the quite unknown Piedras Blancas National Park, the lodge is located right on the Golfo Dulce. The large property includes a stony beach, beautiful gardens, secondary and primary forest, trails and a lookout platform in the jungle. There is a nearby bird rehabilitation project that releases illegally captured scarlet macaws back into the wild. Thanks to this exemplary work, you can observe (and hear!!) lots of these colorful parrots as they frequently fly over and visit the grounds of the lodge. Of course, there are also many other species of birds like toucans and hummingbirds. Monkeys, coatis and even wild cats can sometimes be observed. It is a beautiful spot to observe animals and enjoy pure nature. 5 large and comfortable wooden bungalows with private bathroom, ceiling fan, terrace and hammocks are located in the tropical gardens. Another 3 rooms with private bathroom, 2 of them located at the forest edge and 1 room close to the main building and right net to the fresh water swimming pool. A cozy restaurant with bar on the ground floor, and a lookout terrace on the second floor are part of the main building. The lodge offers guided hikes through the jungle, horseback riding, boat excursions to Río Esquinas mangrove swamps, snorkeling or visits to the nearby botanical garden.

This tour includes one jungle hike excursion, other excursions can be booked and paid for at the lodge:
