Playa Cacao de Golfito
For many decades now both tourists and locals have escaped to this beach for the day to swim and relax or lunch in one of the two local restaurants located there. Boat spotting as vessels in transit come in is a favorite and lazy past time.
Keep watch for luxury yachts heading to the new Golfito Marina Village docks, charter sport fishers returning from a day off shosre -plowing down the bay to one of the areas botique marinas, cruising sailors settling in at anchor and luxury cruise ships here to dock at the old Banana loading Pier for shore leave and exploration.... This quaint stretch along the coast is strung out along the entry to Golfito harbor is laid back and picturesque. Most properties have access to city or mountain water, electricity, cell phones and Direct T.V., you can enjoy a jungle-beach lifestyle off the main path without"roughing it". As an area now incorporated into and made a part of a National Forest Reserve, this area of interest is "an anomaly of zoning" and certain development restrictions are strictly enforced. Therefore buyers should be duly advised when taking ownership/possession of a Playa Cacao beach property.

Eco-Tourism, Surf, and Untamed Wilderness
Visitors from all over the world come to the Osa Peninsula, Puerto Jimenez, Corcovado National Park, Drakes Bay and the Rio Sierpe
areas for World Class Adventure! Some of those visitors have decided to
stay and make it a lifestyle. This multi-cultural area is gifted with a
western frontier flavor in it's hub of Puerto Jimenez–
the product of a long history of hearty adventurers settling there as
gold miners, cattle ranchers or trophy hunters. Back in "the day" the
jungles were peppered with adventurers coming into town infrequently to
cash in a claim, pick up fresh horses and stock up on provisions. With
the prohibition of mining and hunting a new focus on the natural
treasures and famous biodiversity has given the town center a new life.
Hidden down the outlaying roads are stunning beaches and the countries
most pristine rainforest. Playa Blanca to the north, Cabo Matapalo to the south and Carate on
the east offer surf, waterfalls, jungle trails, awesome animal
abundance and most importantly, a community of people dedicated to the
possibilities of tomorrow with conservation foremost today.
Zoning Plan and Areas of Protection for many wilderness areas are currently being revised and boundaries reset.
