SNORKELING TOUR TO CAÑO ISLAND BIOLOGICAL RESERVE
Full Day Cano Island Snorkeling Tour
Cano Island Biological Reserve is located in the Pacific Ocean 15 km. off of the Osa Peninsula. The border of the island has white sandy beaches and a well protected in-shore reef makes it the best spot in Costa Rica for scuba diving and snorkeling. Normally there is great visibility, about 20 meters (65 ft), providing for clear sightings of the many species living in the island`s waters: fish, turtles, manta rays, dolphins and whales to name a few. This Costa Rica National Park has a main trail that is well maintained, leading uphill into a pristine rainforest. 50 meter tall trees and Pre-Columbian tombs are scattered along the trail. This National Park was used by ancient indigenous peoples inhabiting the southern coastal area as a burial site. Many of Costa Rica`s mysterious spherical stones of varying sizes have been found on the island.
