Costa Rica has world-class Scuba Diving sites, amongst them are the beautiful Catalina Islands and Murcielago Islands in the North Pacific shore, manta rays, dolphins, white tip sharks and barracudas are a sure sight every day, and if you are in luck you might have an encounter with some bull sharks. Caño Island has been called a small Cocos Island, much closer to our coast it offers great marine diversity, If you like sharks you will see white tipped reef sharks, bull sharks and very occasionally hammerheads. Depending on the time of year we see humpbacks, Orcas and pilot whales. Dolphins include Pacific spotted, bottlenose and spinners.
In the Caribbean Coast you will find a barrier reef that stretches from the town of Puerto Viejo to the Panamanian boarder and offers you more than 25 fixed dive locations ranging from shallow coral gardens to deep, fringing reefs and vertical walls dropping to over 130 feet! Here you will also find larger pelagics such as sharks and rays can be seen, along with our normal resident turtles, seahorses, rays, nurse sharks and much more! Inmerse yourself into the Costa Rican blue and get your fins blown off!
OPTIONAL: after day 6 we could book Cocos Island cruise, thanks to the breathtaking marine life in its waters, rugged yet incredibly verdant island, this World Heritage Site is the spectacularly beautiful crown jewel of Costa Rica’s many National Parks. Cocos Island was named one of the ten best scuba diving spots in the world by PADI and a “must do” according to diving experts. This trip is 10 days long, making the trip a 17 or 18 day long trip.
