Delfines del Golfo is aimed at a broader sector of the population for our guests to find a place of solace and contemplation at a reasonable price. In this sense, an essential purpose of Delfines del Golfo is to contribute to a democratization of Nature. Having Nature lovers in mind, our facilities include a totally equipped casona with 3 bedrooms for up to 8 guests and five bungalows for up to four guests each. Our rancho contains cooking facilities and fridges. All has been built by local labor and using local material on a sustainable basis. Each bungalow has a private bathroom, hot water, cable TV, fans and screened windows and doors. The green area offers two above-the-ground swimming pools, one for children and the other for adults and camping facilities.
We are located in La Palma town, by the magnificent Golfo Dulce, Osa Peninsula, in Costa Rica's South Pacific. We are in the middle of the adventure very near some the area's major attractions:
- just 3 km (1,8 miles) away from the peaceful Blanca beach
- 15 km (9,3 miles) away from 'Los Patos' Station, one of the entrances to the stunning Corcovado National Park.
- 8 km (5 miles) away from the Ng'be Indigenous Territory, and
- 30 km (19 miles) away from the magical beaches of Bahia Drake (Drake bay)
You can take the bus to Puerto Jimenez at the Transportes Blanco bus station in Barrio Mexico, San Jose (Tels: 2257-4121 / 2735-5189). There are 2 buses departing from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez daily at 8 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. The bus stops half a block away from the Delfines del Golfo Lodge at La Palma. The bus ticket's price is 6,500 colones.
If you prefer to drive, there are two routes: the Coastal Highway and the Interamerican Highway.
The best route is the coastal highway. On the way to Caldera drive to Orotina (Pozon), then drive on to Quepos-Dominical and Palmar Norte. Once in Palmar Norte keep driving 31 km (19 miles) south towards Chacarita junction, then turn right towards Puerto Jimenez and drive 50 km (31 miles) to get to La Palma.
If you take the Interamerican highway instead, drive through 'Cerro de la Muerte' to San Isidro in Perez Zeledon. Once in San Isidro, turn right to Dominical to reach the coastal highway, and from there turn left and drive southward to Chacarita's junction.
