Scuba diving in Costa
Rica. Costa Rica's Cocos Island is viewed by many to
be one of the spectacular dive spots in the world.
Located approximately 300 miles from the coastal
port of Puntarenas, the archipelago is world renown
for it's usually high concentration of large
pelagic. Dramatic waterfalls cleanse the rugged
landscape above, while steep drop‑offs and immense
rock formations litter the ocean floor. Numerous
dive sites provide ample opportunity to encounter
large schooling hammerhead, manta rays, moray eels,
white‑tip sharks, and more. Several liveaboards
offer week long excursions to Cocos Island,
providing all accommodations, meals and necessary
Costa Rica's Pacific
Coast offers an equally enjoyable, and far less
expensive alternative for those interested in
Pacific coast diving. The volcanic rock formations
and rock pinnacles provide an ideal refuge for the
marine life which inhabits these local waters. With
an average water temperature of 75‑82 degrees,
between Mid‑April to Mid‑January, divers can enjoy
the true meaning of "tropical diving". Furthermore,
the surrounding Gulf of Papagayo contains no major
rivers, therefore, some of the best diving takes
place during the rainy season; in fact, it is often
enhanced as the rain lays down some of the silt and
rich nutrients. Over 25 local dive sites, most
within a 10‑40 minute boat ride, are scattered along
the Pacific coastline. Year round, these dive spots
are frequently visited by white‑tip reef sharks,
spotted eagle rays, turtles, gigantic stingrays, sea
horses, starfish and many species of eels.
Occasionally, whale sharks, spinner dolphins,
humpback whales and Orcas have been sighted.
Although there is some soft and hard coral present,
most of the dive sites do not exhibit
large coral deposits.
For those interested in macro photography, a
terrific opportunity exists to capture colorful
images of clown shrimp, sea horses, frog fish, tube
worms, eels, scorpion fish, crabs and star fish, all
of which litter the ocean floor.
The Bat and Catalina
Islands, situated north and south of Playa Hermosa
respectively, have a different topography,
containing more sea fans and soft coral than do the
local dive sites. Due to stronger currents, both the
Bat and Catalina Islands are non anchored dives,
thus requiring more experienced divers. These dive
destinations are best known for their gigantic
schools of fish, including schooling horse‑eyed
jacks, barracuda and wahoo. Although hammerhead
sharks have been seen here, they are not common,
however, you will have a terrific opportunity to
encounter manta rays, Pacific blue jacks and bull
sharks. The Bay Islands, approximately two and one
half hours north of Playa Hermosa, have a relatively
large bull shark population, including a resident
shark named "Freight Train", which nears 15 feet in
length. Situated approximately one hour and fifteen
minutes to the south, the Catalina Islands are best
enjoyed between the months of November and May.
Large manta rays (12‑20 ft.) are regularly present,
as are a large variety of starfish which are not
seen at local dive sites.
Along the southwest
coast, Caño Island offers the regions best dive
opportunities. Only minutes by boat from Drake Bay,
these rocky, volcanic formations can be enjoyed year
round, as there is very little in the way of water
runoff. Visibility ranges from 35 ft ‑ 90 ft.
Bajo del Diablo, one of
the areas most popular dive spots, earned its name
from the large schools of Devil Rays that frequent
the area. With an average depth of 70 ft. a steady
current, and visibility of 50+ ft., the marine life
at Bajo del Diablo is prolific and the underwater
landscape is just magnificent.
As you descend from the
dive boat you’ll immediately take notice of the
large canyons and rock formations residing on the
ocean floor, separated only by small patches of
white, sandy bottom. White tip reef sharks are
common sightings here, often resting along the ocean
floor or cruising through the canyons. Much of the
volcanic rock that make up the canyon walls are
blanketed with thick, beautiful white gorgonias,
giving them an almost Christmas tree effect. Small
crevices, holes and passageways abound, all of which
are occupied by healthy numbers of moray eel,
octopus, lobster, blennies, sea stars, gobys,
groupers, parrot fish, puffer fish, and other
colorful, tropical fish. For underwater
photographers, both wide angle and macro/close‑up
opportunities exist, the latter being better on days
with poorer visibility.
Throughout the dive you
will be permitted to ascend or descend along the
canyon walls, surveying the topography and colorful
marine life. Or, cruise above the uppermost portion
of the rock formations, which reside in just 35 ft
of water, and take note of all the marine life that
exists nearer to the surface. Don't forget to pay
attention to the open water, where larger schools of
fish habitually pass by.
Costa Rica white water
rafting and kayaking. The warm, rushing rivers which
sweep through Costa Rica's lush countryside offer
world class white water rafting and kayaking
opportunities. From the Reventazón, the famous
Pacuare and the class 5 Chirripó, all in the
southern reaches of the country, to the spectacular
Peñas Blancas, the mighty Toro, and the Sarapiqui,
all of which are located in the northern central
area of Costa Rica, rafting enthusiasts from around
the world pit their skills against these wild and
turbulent rivers. Known not only for their exciting
rides, these rivers offer scenic beauty unparalleled
anywhere in the world. Lush tropical rainforest,
spectacular waterfalls, and abundant wildlife line
the hundreds of rivers which continually feed the
Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
