Located in the beautiful Pacific Ocean, about 20 km off the coast of the Osa Peninsula, Caño Island is a spectacular marine biological reserve in Costa Rica. Part of the province of Puntarenas and northeast of Corcovado National Park, Caño Island is considered a point of great geographical and archeological importance.
At fifteen kilometers from the Port of San Pedrillo, this piece of land of 300 acres was once a cemetery dating back before the Pre-Columbian era. With fantastic underwater visibility, you can see on any day sea turtles, dolphins, stingrays, moray eels, barracuda, tuna, snappers, and groupers swimming along with a variety of sharks and humpback whales or pilot whales. As a biological reserve the number of divers is regulated and visitors are not allowed to remove anything from marine life either living or dead.
The island campgrounds have located a station wagon on hand and you can arrange boat trips with the caveat that only can be until Sunday or Drake Bays.
