Along the Shores of the Golfo Dulce

The lodges listed here are on the shores of the Golfo Dulce. This area has no roads, so you must get to the lodges by boat. I recommend that you have firm reservations when visiting this area, so your transportation should be arranged. If worse comes to worst, you can hire a boat taxi at the muellecito (little dock), on the water just beyond the gas station, or at La Bomba, in Golfito, for between $50 and $100, depending on your destination. If driving a rental vehicle, arrange for secure parking.


En Route to Wilson Botanical Gardens

The Wilson Botanical Gardens offer the best accommodations in or around the tiny town of San Vito.
