Cano Island is considered by many to be the most beautiful snorkeling and diving in Costa Rica and in the world.

The unimaginably lush Costa Rican island covers 1.9 square miles is a protected reserve of the Osa Conservation Area. The Costa Rican government decided to preserve its rich biodiversity and history.

As a result, you will snorkel, scuba dive or free dive all around it, but not step foot on the island itself currently adding to its mystique and mystery.

Speaking of special, Cano Island is 9 short miles from the coast of Corcovado National Park, named by National Geographic as the “most biologically intense place on earth”.
