Golfito is located on Costa Rica’s South Pacific coast, about 340 highway kilometers from San José. The town offers small marinas, yachting and boating services, sport fishing, and a destination for cruise ships. Much of the tourism in the Golfito area focuses on the sport fishing industry.

They offer port clearance (Zarpe), a port clearance document. In the us it’s form number 1300. It’s a piece of paper that tells the next port authority that you were authorized to leave your last port legally.

Another great service is yacht transportation. Yacht transport is an alternative to the traditional passaging (sailing or motoring) to reach desired destinations around the globe. Transport when compared to passaging is cost effective, safer and improves availability.

They offer ship’s agent services. Succinctly, the term shipping agent refers to the relationship between the principal (in this case the shipping company conveying the goods) and its representative, whereby the principal, expressly or impliedly, authorizes the agent to work under his control and on his behalf.

Other important services Banana Bay Marina offers include concierge, reserver dockage, general liaison, travel and hotel reservations, fishing licenses, sport fishing tours, shipping – import as well as export, and assistance with finding professional repair facilities.

Banana Bay Marina offers spacious first-class lodging with air-conditioned rooms, private baths (hot water), queen-sized beds and cable television. Pamper yourself by escaping from the boat and enjoying a few days on shore. The bar staff, especially Blanca, are friendly and most speak enough english to help the North American. The menu is varied and there are good daily specials. Very nice place, friendly, good service, prices are not cheap but the quality of the food and makes it worth trying. The town derives its architecture and culture from that fifty year association and it retains much of that rich flavor and boasts inhabitants from many countries and cultures.

If you want to enjoy the unparalleled thrill of Southern Pacific gamefishing, a charter at Banana Bay Marina is perfect for you. You will be amazed by the abundance of aquatic diversity offered by the tranquil bay of Golfito, Costa Rica.
