About Golfito, Costa Rica

The Golfito area has a population of approximately 3,000 people, and was at one point in history a true "Banana Republic." Up until 1985, Golfito served as the area headquarters for the United Fruit Company. The town derives its architecture and culture from that 50 year association and it retains much of that rich flavor and boasts inhabitants from many countries and cultures.

Access to most goods and services such as provisions, repair parts, and travel services is readily available. Golfito has a large Duty Free with the lowest prices in the country. Additionally it has a hospital, seven day a week access to branch offices of the national bank, and several fine restaurants.

Access by almost all modes of transportation is a breeze! Golfito is served by two major commuter airlines with several regularly scheduled flights daily to San Jose, Costa Rica's capital city. Flying time is about 45 minutes. In addition, the staff in our travel agency can book direct charter flights from San Jose and many other points in Costa Rica.
