Golfo Dulce

The Golfo Dulce is located on the South Pacific region of Costa Rica and is one of the three tropical fjords in the world.

With more than 300mtr. deep waters, it also provides home of humpback whales and is a paradise for dolphins.


The bay separates the Osa Peninsula with the mainland. The Golfo Dulce is characterized by its lonely beaches and stunning tropical rain forest. In the tropical jungle one may see four species of monkey (white face, spider, squirrel and howler) anteaters, coati mundis, ocelots and jaguars.

Beautiful birds are plentiful, toucans, parrots and hummingbirds are some of the long list of birds.


There was a timber factory planed in the Golfo Dulce. Greenpeace could stop in the year 1996 the project, coming in the Golfo by the ship Moby Dick. Captain J. Stewart commented that there is so much biodiversity, that one is almost forced to defend it.
