Golfito Real Estate and San Vito Real Estate

With offices based in Golfito and San Vito, our property listings cover a wide range of terrain in Southern Costa Rica, including the Golfito, the Osa Peninsula, Playa Pavones, Playa Zancudo and the mountainous rural inland areas of Agua Buena and San Vito.

The terrain varies from Rainforest and Mountains to Beaches and Bay. Some areas have a well developed infrastructure; others are remote and accessible only by 4 WD or boat.

The Southern Coastal Area: Nestled between the Osa Peninsula and Costa Rica's Southern Pacific Coast is Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf), a large bay ringed by rivers. This area features secluded beaches, the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve, and Piedras Blancas National Park.

It encompasses vast rural landscape mixed with old coffee plantations and small manageable farms, a myriad collage of sustainable farmland possibilities.
