Nestled between the Osa Peninsula and Costa Rica's south Pacific Coast, the Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf) is a large bay ringed by rivers, secluded beaches, and the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. Most of the lowlands surrounding the Golfo Dulce are covered with tall evergreen forest. The area near Golfito includes some of the highest forests in Central America and one of the wettest places in the world. The Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve protects forested lowland areas surrounding the Golfo Dulce and connects the many wildlife refuges and national parks in the surrounding area. Those nearby include Corcovado National Park, Piedras Blancas National Park, Golfito Wildlife Refuge, Terraba - Sierpe National Wetlands and Carate Wildlife Refuge. Protected from the Pacific Ocean by the Osa Peninsula the famous Parque Nacional Corcovado lies in two parts around its shores. The smaller part is located on the eastern shore of the gulf, near to Golfito, while the other lies on the Pacific coast of the Osa Peninsula and can be reached from the little town of Puerto Jiminez, on the western side of the gulf.
