|Dominical - ADVENTURE
The Cano Island Biological Reserve tour is a fascinating exploration to the deep waters of Southern Pacific of Costa Rica. You will see a great variety of marine life, birds, monkeys & snakes, Dolphins, Humpback & Pilot Whales, Scenic views of Drake?s Bay, Burial sites & stone spheres.
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 this island 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.
The island's main trail is well maintained, leading uphill into a pristine rainforest. 50 meter tall trees and Pre-Columbian tombs are scattered along the trail. The island's main points of interest are that it was used by ancient indigenous peoples inhabiting the southern coastal area as a burial site and many of Costa Rica's mysterious spherical stones of varying sizes have been found on the island.
