Golfito Mangrove Tour

MANGROVE BOAT TOUR IN GOLFITO

Let the tropical rainforest and delicate Golfito Mangrove ecosystem knock you out of your seat. This Golfito Mangrove Tour experience is highly recommended for any naturalist, young or old, who wants to get to know firsthand the pulse of the mangrove ecosystem.

During this tour you will ride comfortably under the shade of several tall species of mangroves, which grow only in select areas of the world and in Costa Rica.

This Golfito Mangroves are located on the Coto River estuary, where the saltwater of the Golfo Dulce Bay comes together with  the freshwater of the Coto river. 

A great variety of animals reside within this habitat, including caimans, snakes, monkeys, iguanas, and several species of birds.

The plants are both varied and unique, but can be invariably recognized by their striking root systems, which delve beneath the surface of the water to prop up the plants above.
