Full description

Situated on the Pacific Coast's Golfo Dulce, the Golfito National Wildlife Refuge nearly surrounds the town of Golfito and was largely created to protect the community's water supply. However, because it borders Piedras Blancas National Park to the north, travelers looking to enjoy eco-tourism should make a stop at the refuge and experience its impressive diversity of wildlife. The refuge's evergreen forests, which feature trees that are more than 140 feet tall, are nourished by the heavy rains in the area, particularly during Costa Rica's rainy season between May and November. The Golfito National Wildlife Refuge boasts a wide variety of tree species, including silk cotton, butternut, manwood and copal trees. Perhaps the most interesting plant species found at the refuge is the cyad, which resembles a palm tree and is proven to have existed during the dinosaur age. On this tour our guide will take you through beautiful trails inside Golfito's evergreen rainforest, in this protected area you will be able to spot different types of birds and a great variety of plants and trees, you may even be able to see white-nosed coatis, tairas, agoutis and 3 species of monkeys.
