At the southern end of the Pacific Coast is the
Osa Peninsula, widely recognized as the richest biological zone in Mesoamerica.
Corcovado National Park is an undeniably beautiful place,
considered to be one of the most important natural preserves in the Americas,
this virgin rain forest park invites superlatives from all who visit.
At least thirteen distinct vegetation types in close proximity, including
mangroves, palm swamps and bloodweed forest make Corcovado a botanist's
dream. Jaguars, giant anteaters, hundreds of white-lipped peccaries, tapers,
and a host of rare rain forest animals inhabit the vast reaches surrounding
the crocodile-filled lagoon at the park's center. The captivating visual
beauty of its forest and of its coastline, with miles of uninhabited beaches
and roaring cascades, draws visitors from all over the world.
Caño Island Biological Reserve is located less
than 30 miles off the Pacific coast of southwest Costa Rica and is one
of of the most valuable archeological sites in the country. Caño
Island is also one of the world's newest hot spots for adventure diving.
This virgin area offers a variety of unique diving attractions. "The
Devil's Drop" for example, is a rockpile which begins at 40' and
drops to as deep as 250'. It is not uncommon for divers upon descent to
be met by schools of thousands of fish swimming freely among them.
This could very well be Costa Rica's finest diving spot!
