I still perfectly remember the feeling that I experienced when I first visited this paradise, it was recorded in my memory and as time went by this feeling got even stronger. Then, after 5 years of being away, life brings me back to Golfo Dulce, a unique place where you can really admire the magic of nature through all the senses.
Playa Cativo is the perfect setting to hone your stand-up paddle boarding techniques! Whether you're a beginner or seasoned pro, you'll truly enjoy this exciting water activity as you take in the beauty of the surrounding Golfo Dulce and rainforest. Sheltered from the wind, our bay seems to have been designed just for stand-up paddling with tranquil, clear water in the mornings, glorious sunsets at dusk, and a generally small and manageable surf in the afternoons.
It was a truly amazing event on June 15th as an animated group of young school children paraded with their drums at the Aboretum Luis Jorge Poveda Alvarez in the Reserva Forestal of Golfo Dulce. This band of drums made of recycled buckets is called “The Downpour,” and the little drummers put on an entertaining show during the celebration of the Centenarium of Tree Day in Costa Rica.
