Golfito National Wildlife Refuge
The 1,309 hectares of the Golfito National Wildlife Refuge nearly surround the town of Golfito and protect the community's water supply. It borders the Piedras Blancas National Park to the north, and is part of the Osa Conservation Area.
Piedras Blancas National Park: Together with the Corcovado National Park and the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve, the Piedras Blancas National Park forms an important biological corridor that protects a vast array of species of flora and fauna along the Golfo Dulce. The park’s 14,000 hectares are home to rugged mountains, the Esquinas and Piedras Blancas rivers, and the remaining lowland tropical rainforest of the Golfo Dulce area, which provides a habitat for the increasingly rare jaguar.
