Called “the most biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic, Costa Rica’s Golfito offers endless exploration opportunities and an exciting new charter destination for superyachts called Golfito Marina Village & Resort.
Developers of Costa Rica’s newest world-class yachting, eco-tourism destination and luxury resort property, have announced that construction is officially underway. The long-awaited project offers a unique location previously inaccessible to travelers seeking luxury accommodations in a truly untapped travel destination.
The first phase of the deep-water marina is projected to be completed in 2015 and will include 50 out of 132 total yacht slips, featuring private and secure berths designated for yachts up to 350 feet (100m). The world-class marina also will feature a spectacular array of amenities, including a yacht club, restaurants, on-site customs and immigration, a full service boat yard, outstanding accommodations for yacht captains and crew, and more. Golfito Bay is considered a safe harbor and is the only approved drop-off and pick-up zone for yacht transport ships on the west coast of Central and South America.
Residential and resort amenity development will begin soon after marina construction commences and will feature villas with spacious two to six bedroom floor plans with magnificent views of Golfito Bay. These residences will be among the last ever built in the area, ensuring that it forever remains a sanctuary of nature in its most beautifully preserved state. Resort amenities will include an open air spa, fitness facilities, swimming pools and an island restaurant with a night club.
Golfito Marina Village & Resort will attract the adventurous eco-travelers who want to enjoy the Costa Rican culture of Pura Vida, or living life at its finest. A full-service concierge service will be available at the resort to arrange local touring packages for guests, including, horseback riding, rainforest excursions, zip-lining, rafting, sportfishing and surfing trips.
The project will mad its official debut at the Monaco Yacht Show from September 24 to 27. The project will also be represented at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 30 to November 3.
