Introducing Southern Golfo Dulce
Departing the Interamericana at Río Claro, a gravel road travels south to the forested Valle de Coto Colorado on the south shore of the Golfo Dulce. It’s worth noting that the road does not actually cross the Río Coto Colorado: that is done on a slow-moving barge, carrying three cars and a handful of humans, which gives you a pretty good idea of how things work in these parts. Nonetheless, many travelers make this arduous journey in search of the country’s longest left-hand break at Pavones or the more tranquil waters at Zancudo. Other than the transplants who came to surf and sun and decided to stay, this far corner is also home to a significant indigenous population, who inhabit the Reserva Indígena Guaymí de Conte Burica near Pavones.
