Costa Rica’s Marina Bahia Golfito Announces Major Enhancements

Costa Rica’s Marina Bahia Golfito of The Enjoy Group has announced major destination and marina enhancements. The enhancements include building 11 waterfront villas and 40 modern tropical condominiums, with a host of additional luxury shopping and exquisite new restaurants. The expanded marina will feature a total of 120 slips. Currently, nine custom berths can accommodate yachts up to approximately 106 metres, with approximately 8-metres maximum draft.

Marina Bahia Golfito is one of Costa Rica’s leading superyacht, sportfishing, and eco-tourism destinations. Located near the Osa Peninsula on the Golfo Dulce and part of the Corcovado National Park Wildlife Corridor, Marina Bahia Golfito is leading the way as a superyacht charter hub. Situated in one of Costa Rica’s most vibrant destinations, Golfito Bay is a gulf within a gulf, a pristine landscape framed by the lush mangroves of Corcovado and Piedras Blancas National Parks and home to some of the richest biodiversity in the world.

The waters of the Golfo Dulce in the Marina Bahia Golfito region provide a mecca for world-class sportfishing. With a radius of 100 nautical miles, the South Pacific of Costa Rica is home to immense populations of catch-and-release sailfish, blue, black, and striped marlin, and yellowfin tuna. Following the highly successful Tuna Cup in 2022 hosted by Marina Bahia Golfito, the marina is planning additional tournaments catering to sportfish enthusiasts.

"The Golfo Dulce is one of the most biodiverse marine areas in the world and has one of but four tropical fjords on the planet. This area is recognized by National Geographic as the place 'with the most intense biodiversity on the planet'," said Pedro Abdalla, Marina Bahia Golfito's Marina Director.

Marina Bahia Golfito is the property of the Costa Rican hospitality company, Enjoy Group and a part of IGY's global network. The expansion of the marina is guided by a multi-tiered approach to the tenets of eco-responsibility and sustainability fundamentally intrinsic to Costa Rica.

"The time has come to meet our burgeoning yacht charter, sportfish, luxury and eco-travel markets with an experience architecture that complements our discriminating guests," said Oscar Alfaro, Enjoy Group's Director of Marketing.

"We are announcing destination enhancements that feature the sustainable construction of 11 villas, 40 condominiums, six restaurants, 20 boutique shops and kiosks, and a total of 120 slips. Environmental alleviation includes carbon footprint offsetting, planting and regeneration of coral reefs and the monitoring of biodiversity," continued Alfaro. "We expect a wait list within days of our announcement of this unprecedented real estate opportunity in the world's most pristine environment.”

Marina Bahia Golfito provides Charter Concierge for owners, their families and guests, building extraordinary itineraries featuring the remarkable natural world, deserted beaches, and teeming life-both on land and at sea-that are integral to the Costa Rica experience.

Large yacht captains and crew are assisted by the marina's Charter Concierge team to streamline charter rules and regulations, build extraordinary itineraries, fast-track provisioning and parts services, and meet the needs of owners and crew. Crew amenities are well imagined and include a dedicated Crew Lounge and multiple restaurants.
