Nestled within the heart of the country's lush rainforests, Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge stands as a gateway to an unforgettable experience, where travelers can immerse themselves in the breathtaking beauty of nature and witness the awe-inspiring presence of these magnificent creatures. The Humpback Whale Season in the Golfo Dulce has begun!

Join us as we delve into the allure of the humpback whale season at Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge and discover why it's an experience not to be missed.

Golfo Dulce is a tropical fiord that stretches from the Piedras Blancas National Park to the Osa Peninsula creating an "inner sea" and sanctuary for abundant wildlife including frolicking dolphins, gentle sea turtles, tropical fish, and marine birds searching for lunch. It is also a critical habitat for humpback whales offering a haven for them to breed, give birth and nurture their calves. And, Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge has a front-row seat to this nature wonderland thanks to its beautiful and strategic location on its shores.
