Scuba Diving at Caño Island: Probably the best diving in Costa Rica, characterized by big fish, big schools of fish, the best visibility, and the possibility of viewing hammerhead sharks and whale sharks. This is “big” Pacific coast diving for intermediate to advanced divers.
Hiking through Corcovado National Park – Corcovado remains a remote and unspoiled wilderness. Guided hikes are a must, because the birds and wildlife are well-camouflaged in the dense forest. Corcovado is one of the last remaining havens for large, rainforest mammals. This is a tropical rainforest – exactly what you imagine when you think of Costa Rica.
The Canopy Tour: Hiking, traversing on overhead cables and rappelling in the tree tops make the Canopy Tour an exhilarating experience. This is a great adventure for most everyone and no prior experience is needed.
Fishing: World-class Sportfishing and Inshore fishing can be found on the South Pacific Coast. October – January tend to be the best months for deep-sea fishing, but yellowfin tuna, dorado and wahoo can be found year-round. Inshore fishing in this area is excellent, particularly for roosterfish.
Horseback Riding: Horseback riding in the South Pacific Coast Region offers a variety of trails, length and difficulty. You can choose from riding along the beach, waterfalls, crossing streams, visiting villages and seeing the pre-columbian stone spheres.This is a good way to see remote rainforest not always traveled by foot.
Snorkeling at Caño Island: Caño Island offers the best underwater visibility in Costa Rica. Large fish, big schools of fish and many pelagic species can be found here. But strong surges and currents can make this difficult. Some full-day tripscombine snorkeling with hiking on Caño Island where there are some mysterious ancient stone spheres.
