Dear Marina Guests,
We extend to you our warmest welcome and invite you to immerse yourself in “Pura Vida” or “Pure Life” at Marina Bahia Golfito located in the heart of the Golfito Wildlife Refuge in Costa Rica. Here in Golfo Dulce, this is not just an expression, it’s a way of life. Warm smiles and the best fishing in Costa Rica await your arrival. Our friendly staff is ready to assist, whether you are staying with us for an extended vacation or just simply passing through. Various guided tours and jaw-dropping adventures are always right around the corner within the town’s local flora and fauna.
If you’re looking to slow down a bit, our peaceful, relaxed atmosphere offers inspiring views and delectable on-site restaurants including a beachfront bar with views of Golfito Bay. Marina Bahia Golfito is considered the home of big game fishing, and Golfo Dulce offers you a variety of fishing activities all within a few miles off the shoreline. We are certain that you will have an enjoyable stay, but please let us know if we can do anything else to ensure this unique opportunity makes your visit memorable. On behalf of IGY and Marina Bahia Golfito, welcome and “Pura Vida”.

Advanced reservations are strongly recommended at the Marina Bahia Golfito. Berthing is not guaranteed without a confirmed reservation. We ask that you provide advanced notice, when feasible, of your approximate arrival time so we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any inconvenience to you.
Please Note: Captains and his/her assignee must check-in/check-out with the marina office for each stay unless otherwise arranged with marina management.
|Check-Out: 1:00 pm||Check-In: 2:00 pm|
When feasible, we request an estimated time of arrival 24hr in advance so we can be fully prepared for your arrival and minimize any inconvenience.
Upon arrival contact the marina office on VHF Channel 16 to obtain directions to the slip assignment. A skilled dock attendant will report to the slip to assist with docking, line handling, and connections. Once comfortably settled, we ask that you visit our marina office to check-in. The staff will answer any questions you have.
Upon departure, we request you contact the marina office 1-2 hours prior to departure to ensure all items are in order. A receipt can be provided at the marina office or emailed upon request to the email address provided at the time of check-in. If all items are in order, please hail the marina office on VHF Channel 16 if you would like assistance with disconnection and lines.
If a slip is occupied after 2:00 pm on the day of your scheduled departure, an additional night’s dockage will be charged to your account.
We will do our absolute best to accommodate your requests whenever possible. In most cases, if your slip is available prior to 2:00 pm on the day of your arrival, or after 1:00 pm on the day of your departure, we will allow you to remain in the slip at no additional charge. Prior arrangements must be made with the marina office for early arrival or delayed departure in order to avoid unnecessary charges.
In the event an early check-in and/or late check-out is unable to be accommodated in your currently slip, we will try to accommodate by making another slip available until such time your slip is available or you are ready to depart the marina.
In the event a temporary slip is made available to you, and you do not relocate the vessel, the marina reserves the right to charge you two times (2x’s) the original daily rate for each night you occupy the temporary slip.
This is necessary as at times, the marina operates at full occupancy and failure to relocate the vessel could negatively affect other guests.
Please note: Cancellation policies are subject to change. Please refer to your reservation confirmation or contact the marina office direct for confirmation of cancellation policy. Cancellation requests must be submitted directly to the marina. Any cancellation requests received through the IGY Marinas website are not considered proper cancellation.
Customs & Immigration Office
Contact the marina office to arrange for clearance.
Customs must be notified 72 hrs in advance of arrival to report a firm arrival location and ETA. Please also advise the Marina Office of ETA.

Once settled, please report to the marina office to complete registration.
