Once you’re in Costa Rica, you can choose between air transportation (45 minutes from San José) and ground transportation (5 - 5.30 hours) to get to Puerto Jiménez or Golfito, which are the two local ports of entry to Playa Cativo. SANSA operates daily domestic commercial flights to both destinations. Private charter flights are also available.
The flight from Costa Rica’s capital city of San José to Golfito or Puerto Jimenez is a beautiful experience.
Upon arrival, you will be surrounded by some of the most unspoiled and diverse rainforests in the world. Playa Cativo is an Eco Lodge located on the calm waters of the Golfo Dulce, the inner side of the Osa Peninsula in southern Costa Rica, which is the only tropical fjord in the Americas.

Immerse in the strikingly beautiful setting and bask in the ultimate peace and serenity. Walk along the secluded beach, feel the fresh forest breeze, touch the calm ocean waters and unwind.
