Costa Rica’s Newest Superyacht Marina Breaks Ground June 2014

Golfito, a city whose economy has lagged since the Chiquita Banana Company closed its Costa Rica-based operations in 1985 is to get a new lease of life.

Scheduled to break ground in June 2014 the Golfito Marina Village & Resort, will become Costa Rica’s newest superyacht destination and will provide hundreds of well-paying jobs in the construction, service and hospitality industries.
The first phase of the deep-water marina will include 50 (out of 130 total) slips, featuring private and secure dockage designated for superyachts up to 100 metres
Amenities include accommodations for yacht captains and crew, an open air spa, fitness facilities, swimming pools and an island restaurant with a night club, boat service yard, dry dock and an 80 metre fuel dock.
With plans to host future sport fishing tournaments, Golfito Marina was designed specifically to meet all angler requirements.
In close proximity to the Panama Canal and south of the hurricane zone, it is nestled on the edge of Golfito Bay, on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. With the calm harbour, Golfito is the only approved drop off zone for yacht transport ships on the West Coast of North, Central and South America.
It will offer an exciting new charter yacht destination to a location which was previously inaccessible to superyachts. It will also undoubtedly attract the adventurous eco-travellers who want to explore the pristine natural environment and enjoy the Costa Rican culture of Pura Vida, or living life at its finest.
