Diving & Snorkeling

The northern half of Costa Rica's Pacific coast unquestionably contains the most popular diving spots in the country. Abundant in marine life, visitors to certain diving hot-spots are almost guaranteed to catch sight of sharks, manta rays and other big fish. Playas del Ocotal, Coco and Flamingo as well as Culebra Bay have tours that offer trips to many surrounding destinations. But without a doubt, Isla del Coco, which is 330 miles southwest of the Costa Rican coastline, offers truly world-class diving, second to none in the region. In the south, the snorkeling is excellent around Isla del Cano's main beach and the Drake Bay area.See listings below
