Best dive sites in Guanacaste Province

There are approximately 20 dive sites near to the Playas del Coco shore. You’ll find additional sites at the Catalina, Bat and Tortuga Islands. The dive sites at the offshore islands are the most famous. In particular, Cueva del Tiburón (a.k.a. Shark Cave) near the Catalina Islands is home to several, sleeping reef sharks. Also, Big Scare near the Bat Islands offers up an adrenalin-filled Bull Shark encounters. Closer to shore, Cabeza de Mono is a superb site for watching rays pass by. Punta Gorda and Punta Argentina are other superb dive sites in the area with a healthy variety of tropical fish life.

Snorkeling in Guanacaste Province

Because of the poor visibility and lack of coral immediately surrounding the shore, Playas del Coco is not known for its snorkeling opportunities. However, Playa Guacamaya and Nacascolo are both within an hour’s boat ride and feature coral reefs with plenty of marine life. The snorkeling at both of these destinations is the best in the region.
