journey to a private, ocean-front jungle destination...
Teaming jungles with waterfalls and mountain streams meet lawns and blossoming gardens. This haven in the southwestern corner of Costa Rica is accessible only by boat. The warm aqua waters, always between 80 and 85°F, are home to a rich variety of marine life including dolphins who share this place with us.
The beach lies a hundred meters from your cabin. You can snorkel, scuba dive, boat, kayak, or walk along the beach. Whether you are new at something or have done it for years, we are available to assist you in enjoying your adventure to the fullest extent. Adventures can last for an afternoon or for several days according to participant's interests. We can arrange kayak tours, diving trips, or fishing adventures.
Visit us for the very best in adventure vacations and retreats, marine explorations, jungle and ocean journeys, spirit quests, and rainforest healing. For the adventure traveler, Dolphin Quest is an opportunity to live closely with nature. So leave behind some modern conveniences and come receive the gifts that the rainforest provides.
On land, join us on horseback for a gallop along the beach or follow hours of hiking trails deep into the jungle. In the evenings you can relax in your hammock, engulfed in the sounds and scents of the jungle. Enjoy tropical fruit from the hundreds of trees which surround your cabin and fresh-caught fish from our ocean front yard.

Dolphin Quest is a RAW and REAL jungle environment hidden in the Gulfo Dulce. It is only accessible by boat, and shared by only few people. Nature is ALIVE here.
In our outdoor kitchen we serve two delicious home-cooked meals a day with many organic and locally-grown foods. We also offer professional massage. Life here is personal, adventuresome, and shaped by each person and group who comes. We offer a vigorous adventure for the hands-on traveler or a long overdue vacation of tranquil relaxation.
The Golfo Dulce region is considered a tropical wet forest. Although humidity is relatively high, living on the ocean allows for a regular breeze. The weather is fairly predictable and is generally mild. Travel plans and activities are presumed weather permitting. The air temperature rarely drops below 70°F or above 90°F. The ocean temperature is between 75°F - 85°F. The driest months are February and March. Rainy season peak wet months are September, October and November.
