Nicoya, Gulf of
Gulf of Nicoya (nēkō´yä), inlet of the Pacific Ocean, Central America, between the Nicoya Peninsula and the northwest mainland of Costa Rica. The catch from the fine fishing in the gulf is canned at Puntarenas. The village of Nicoya on the peninsula was probably the first Spanish settlement (c.1530) in Costa Rica.
