Golfito is a small but beautiful town port that stretches out along the Golfo Dulce. The town was built on by the United Fruit Company who moved its regional headquarters here in the '30s then in the 1980s, declining markets, rising taxes, worker unrest and banana diseases forced the company’s departure.
