Snorkelling at Isla de Caño – a great experience!

The following is a guest post written by Chris and Anja, volunteers with Bahia Aventuras, about the Cano Island Snorkel Tour. Thanks Chris and Anja for contributing.

Me and my girlfriend booked a snorkeling tour in December. We had a 1,5h long boat trip to Isla de Caño, south to the Marino Ballena National Park. The trip started right within the National Park, which turned out to be amazing: dolphins decided to accompany our boat and we even saw two humpback whales! Our guide explained everything about them and was really helpful. In total, we visited three snorkeling spots where we could explore the reefs in front of Isla de Caño. The water was quite cold that day, but we saw lots of different fish species and even a sea turtle. Our group also visited the island itself for lunch (typical costa rican arroz con pollo, pasta salad, sandwiches, fresh fruits – yummy!) and relaxing at the beach.

Overall the trip was informative, well organized and is absolutely recommendable!
