    Golfo Dulce
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    The Most Pristine Wetland of the Osa Peninsula. We opened this Beautiful, Enchanting, Hidden Lagoon to a very special Wildlife Tourism, just few months ago, clearing the access canals from barrages and debris, for to be able to guide small groups of Special Persons in this Remote Paradise, where the abundant Wildlife is not scared by human presence and activities. The Peace you will prove paddling slowly on the crystal waters, spotted by patches of Floating Water lilies and Blue Water Hyacinths is very close to a Mystic Experience We bring small groups of Trekkers to enjoy the extreme beauty of this Enchanting Hidden Lagoon where nobody ever brought Tourists before. We worked Hard for to open the access canals to the Crystal Waters of this almost mystic space where the abundant wildlife is not scared by any human activity.
