Welcome to Golfito

In an attempt to boost the region’s economy, the federal government built the duty-free Zona Americana in Golfito. The surreal shopping mall Depósito Libre attracts Ticos and expats from around the country, who descend on the otherwise decaying town for 24-hour shopping sprees. There other attractions, such as hiking or horseback riding in a wildlife refuge or kayaking to nearby mangrove forests and islands, but Golfito is largely a transportation hub for hikers heading to Corcovado, surfers heading to Pavones and sportfishers.
