Stunning little town 'in the back of beyond'. A piece if paradise nested away in the Golfo Dulce.

Puerto Jimenez is surrounded by rainforest and beaches, has an abundance of charm and would make an ideal base to explore.

Well worth a look when in Costa Rica. A great example of a well managed very clean town with lots of activities for those looking for experience or a place to hide and write your book.

The snorkelling was good. Near the last snorkel it got a bit murky and it was hard to see. We had a yummy lunch on the island and it was a lovely beach.

Beautiful and serene. The water was warm and calm. I saw hundreds of dolphins on a dolphin excursion. Decent snorkeling as well. This was a beautiful place.

paradise … can be smooth or rough, one of the few tropical fjords on our planet. Depends where you go … Playa Blanca is interesting but not a tropical idyll

We decided to spend a few nights staying in Puerto Jimenez so we’d have close proximity to ocean activities. Golfo Dulce is beautiful - beaches, mangroves, dolphins, birds, and the rivers in the area are great for wildlife viewing. We did 2 river trips with Surcos Tours and loved the private boats with such personal attention. We learned a lot about this precious ecosystem and we are grateful for all the conservation efforts!

Super scenes along the shore from trees to rocks to beach. Privacy is available or go with a crowd. Very Clean.

We are a family of 5 from Montreal, children’s age: 13, 8 and 4. We just had the most amazing time at Golfo Dulce Retreat and we recommend it with all our heart. It’s the perfect family vacation. Luxury cabins in the middle of the jungle, a two-minute walk from a spectacular private beach. In the same day, we were woken up by monkeys, and in the afternoon, dolphins swam around us while longboard paddling. You will stay entertained all day, one day you will be kayaking in the mangroves and the other day you are snorkeling with amazing corals and fishes! This is a perfect place for kids and adults for relaxation and adventure.
Our kids left completely amazed and … in love with the owners Chantelle and Simon as well as Katie, a biologist from Cambridge University, who taught our kids so many things about different species in the jungle. Let’s not forget about the food. We still can’t grasp how is it possible to feel like we’re eating in Italy, but in the middle of the jungle in Costa Rica!
We often say that we will return for sure to a place we loved so much, but at the end, we never do. I hope this time we will.

If you want sandy beaches that are a young child's delight this may not be your first choice but for slightly older children and adults wishing to escape the city then this is a great chill out spot. Wonderful areas of vegetation accommodate diverse birds and animals, butterflies are exquisite and the fun and sense of adventure are terrific. There is good surfing, whale watching in season and I hear the dolphins are amazing.
