Golfo Dulce, meaning “Sweet Gulf,” is a beautiful bay located between the southern tip of Costa Rica and the Osa Peninsula. Home to bottlenose and spotted dolphins, hawksbill turtles, and endangered scarlet macaws, this pristine region is rich in natural resources. It could be a big draw for travelers with the addition of an international airport, a marina, resorts, and more. About a third of locals live in poverty and are eager for the opportunities tourism might bring. But would development spoil the nature preserves and the rich marine habitat?
