Updated: 3 days ago

Golfito, Costa Rica is a port town located in the Golfito Bay, nestled in between water, dense forests, and hills. Less than an hour away are Piedras Blancas National Park and Golfito National Wildlife Refuge. Golfito also has its own airport, named Golfito Domestic Airport (also known as Aeropuerto Internacional de Golfito). The exit of Golfito Bay leads to Pavon Bay, home to the famous town of Pavones. It has the second-longest wave in the world! Also across the bay is Puerto Jimenez, next to Corcovado National Park. Pacific Sailfish and Marlin are often caught here for sport, but the best time to go fishing is from November to May. Golfito is currently a Duty-Free Zone - this makes it a popular place to buy appliances and electronics for a cheaper price.
