We are passionate about our Rainforest. And we are even more passionate about sharing it with our family, friends and guests. In collaboration with our visiting biologists from Cambridge University, we have put together a series of infographics aimed at telling you more about Golfo Dulce, its wildlife and its different ecosystems.
Golfo Dulce's Mangroves
One of the highlights of your stay at Golfo Dulce Retreat will be a visit to the spectacular mangroves of the Esquinas river. Located at the frontier between fresh and salt water, this is a harsh habitat where only a handful of tree species have adapted to deal with both salt and flooding. However, these mangroves support a wide variety of wildlife, both above and below their intricate root systems.
The tale of the Golfo Dulce Whales
Golfo Dulce is one of the very few places on Earth where you can meet migrating humpback whales from both hemispheres. Both populations use the tranquil waters of the gulf as mating grounds. The following year, the females return to give birth to a single calf - mother and baby will stay for a few weeks until the baby is strong enough for the long journey back to cold-water feeding grounds.
