Dive into Costa Rica!
Scuba Diving Tour
Costa Rica is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Meaning "Rich Coast" in Spanish, this hot tourist spot has grown as quite the attraction. With its tropical lush paradise, it harvests a deep mysterious eco-system filled with tropical animals. Perfect for a calm, relaxing getaway vacation, it's no wonder this adventurer's playground has become such a buzz amongst travelers.
There are many events going on in this cultural melting pot for tourists to attend including spas, golf courses, snorkeling, surfing, rafting, fishing, biking, wind surfing, national parks, and of course Scuba Diving. Costa Rica is known for its amazing marine life, and scuba diving could allow one to experience it. Many underwater excursions and tours are in the demand at the moment, as Costa Rica is known for its upscale diving facilities. Large masses of colorful fish, giant rays, coral reefs, and sea turtles are a glimpse of what the sea life has to offer.
So now that you have an idea of what scuba diving is in the community of Costa Rica, let’s introduce some highly designated spots for scuba diving. Drake Bay, at the north of Osa Peninsula is the most well known in the region. It’s a tiny town by the bay, only accessible by boat. Home to solar powered lodges, communication is very limited to and from this town. Deeper into Drake Bay we come across Isla Del Cano, known to be the ultimate spot for scuba diving. This small island is home to several species of crustaceans, corals, and 3 species of dolphins. The waters are very blue with great visibility. Close your eyes and imagine diving into these waters and seeing rare sea turtles, barracudas, and snapper swimming amongst humpback whales. There are many camp sites set up to spend the rest of the day after a long scuba diving adventure.
Another great location to visit would be Ocotal. This place has beautiful sites of the Papagayo Gulf. Ocotal offers scuba diving certificates, courses, fishing adventures, snorkeling, kayaks, and yes, a fantastical Scuba Diving experience. There you will find whale sharks, bull sharks, dolphins, and many other fish. The dive trips are daily to Catalina’s and Bat Islands.
Last but not least, you can visit the Tortuguero Jungle Canals Excursion. The Canals are natural and manmade waterways used for jungle exploring and transportation. The Canals are home to monkeys, tropical birds, and iguanas. To get there, you must travel through coffee plantations and pass through Braulio Carrillo National Park. On the Caribbean Coast near Limon, the jungle consists of banana farms and small towns, giving you a feel of what rural Costa Rica is like. The waterways are home to Giant Tarpon, Gators, and many more exotic species of fish.
So as you see, Scuba Diving can be anywhere from an additive to a calm relaxing vacation getaway, or a blood rushing adventure through the depths of the underwater world of Costa Rica.
