Rugged cliffs south of Playa Delfín, where the road
Playa Delfín, a Rainforest Reserve and Research Station, is located on
the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica on the south side of the Golfo Dulce.
Wildlife including ocelots, jaguarundis, king
vultures, mealy parrots, river otters, silky anteaters, tamanduas, and two- and
three-toed sloths live in the rainforest. The protected area extends for almost a
kilometer along the Golfo Dulce, a rare and beautiful gulf. Very little
research has been done on the Golfo Dulce, a tropical fjord, the sole anoxic
basin on the entire Pacific coast of the Americas.
