Costa Rica's Newest Superyacht and Tourist Destination Breaks Ground June 2014

Costa Rica's Newest Superyacht and Tourist Destination Breaks Ground June 2014
Hacienda El Dorado, the seasoned development team behind the venture, is breathing new life into the strategically located town of Golfito, whose economy has lagged since the Chiquita Banana Company closed its Costa Rica-based operations in 1985. The Golfito Marina Village & Resort will provide hundreds of well-paying jobs in the construction, service and hospitality industries.

Together with the local governmental authorities, architects and a local real estate developer, the company is starting the development and renovations of the town's main boulevard in a comprehensive multiphase project which will include construction of a renovated road connecting Golfito Airport with the town, a central plaza, Golfito History Museum, tourist information center, local artists' arts and crafts village, a new boardwalk with eateries featuring local cuisine, souvenir shops, coffee shops, bicycle trails and rentals, water taxis to neighboring beaches and attractions and a community recreational park.

The first phase of the deep-water marina will include 50 (out of 130 total) slips, featuring private and secure dockage designated for gigayachts up to 350 feet (100m). The resort will offer beach residential villas, three unique private floating islands with villas, a Honeymoon Beach Villa, a deluxe hotel and outstanding accommodations for yacht captains and crew. Amenities include an open air spa, fitness facilities, swimming pools and an island restaurant with a night club, boat service yard, dry dock and 265 feet (81m) fuel dock. With plans to host future sport fishing tournaments, Golfito Marina was designed specifically to meet all angler requirements.

In close proximity to the Panama Canal and south of the hurricane zone, it is nestled on the edge of Golfito Bay, on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. With the calm harbor, Golfito is the only approved drop off zone for yacht transport ships on the West Coast of North, Central and South America. Golfito Marina Village & Resort will offer an exciting new charter yacht destination to a location which was previously inaccessible to superyachts. It will also undoubtedly attract the adventurous eco-travelers who want to explore the pristine natural environment and enjoy the Costa Rican culture of Pura Vida, or living life at its finest.

Exceptional pre-construction marina and residential incentives are currently being offered. For more information visit, call +1-855.4.Marina or email
