As you sail along the coast, you can stand on the ship's deck and could possibly see one of the thousands of scarlet macaws that inhabit the jungle coastline. Golfo Dulce is where Costa Rica's tropical rainforest meets the Pacific. If you take a close enough and long enough look you may notice the spider monkeys, sloths, iguanas, armadillos, lizards, egrets, toucans, and parrots. Many cruise lines have local naturalists onboard who educate, and entertain as your ship slowly sails the deep green coast of Golfo Dulce.
The Golfo Dulce Lodge is surrounded by the main rainforest of Piedras Blancas National Park and the clear waters of the Golfo Dulce. The lodge consists of more than 750 acres of untouched environment away from tourist crowds.
The various ecosystems and the abundance of wildlife will leave a long lasting impression for nature and animal lovers alike. Adjacent to the extensive lodge grounds, Zoo Ave maintains a release station for rescued and formerly domesticated Scarlet Macaw's, thus an encounter with that magic bird is almost guaranteed. Another attraction within walking distance is "Casa Orchideas", one of Costa Rica's most complete orchid collections.
Whether you are here to hike in the jungle, to watch birds or just to relax, the Swiss host awaits you with a warm welcome. To ensure that there is no negative impact on the environment, the Golfo Dulce Lodge functions under ecological principals.



Costa Rica is famous for its diversity in climate and geography. It is also known for the Corcovado National Park.
The rugged cliffs that drop hundreds of feet to the ocean, the dense mangrove swamps, high plateaus, and soaring mountains make this stop a beautiful and exciting one. Tourists and experts alike are fascinated by the tropical rainforests that come right to the shore.
There is an 800-acre, palm-lined and orchid-trimmed beach located on the eastern shore of the Golfo Dulce. It is heavenly. It is here at the foot of the rain forest, that you may choose go hiking where you can see toucans and howler monkeys. You will also want to visit the Casa Orquideas (Orchid House), a private 90-acre botanical garden with lots of ornamental tropical plants.
