historical golfito

In 1938 Golfito was the main port of Costa Rica when the United Fruit Company had established a strong presence in in this country and moved its headquarters and banana export operations to this port. The United Fruit Company constructed a classic company town similar to those found in the United States during that period. It is a fascinating history to learn about and you can still see evidence of this era through some of the buildings which you will see on this tour. 

Travel with us to witness the town’s main historical landmarks for a close and panoramic cultural experience and a better understanding of this region’s evolution, not to mention a breathtaking view spot and chance to see some of the mysterious stone spheres which still have archaeologists scratching their heads!.
