GOLFITO NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE
From your SeaDream yacht, you will tender to a private marina in Golfito town. With your fellow guests, you will follow a professional guide through one of South Pacific's most famous National Parks. Spectacular natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere attract many visitors to Golfo Dulce annually; explore a park that gathers numerous species of butterflies, monkeys, reptiles, orchids, etc... The National Wildlife Refuge of Golfito has special characteristics since the town with the same name is at its borders. The flora and fauna found there are considered the northern most point for many species found in the southern part of the continent, and many of these are endemic. For this reason, the area around Golfito is ideal for Scientific Tourism which makes it unique within the entire country for its great value and exuberance. It was created in 1945 by the Banana Company of Costa Rica who later passed it on to the Costa Rican government in 1984 and it has 6,944 acres. Golfito is surrounded by a spectacular primary rainforest. As part of the National Park System, the Wildlife Refuge of Golfito provides a home to more than 125 species of trees, including 4 that are in danger of extinction such as: the Peltogyne Purpurea, the Tachigalia Versicolor, the Butternut and the M.Guianensis. There are 11 species of Heliconias, 31 species of orchids, and more than 12 species of ferns. Four species of monkeys also live here, along with 300 species of birds (120% more than those found in North America), 139 mammal species and more than 200 species of amphibians and reptiles. Don't forget your cameras and perhaps an extra memory stick. You could easily take 200 photos on this SeaDream Yachting Land Adventure.
