Scuba diving in Costa Rica is among the best due to the near perfect conditions, from ideal water temperatures to fantastic marine life. There are lots of exceptional locations to dive on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The area called Bahia Drake has wonderful dive spots, especially around the Isla del Cano, as well as the Isla del Coco. Off the coasts of the two islands are an amazing diversity of marine wildlife. Much to behold of several different species of fish, sharks and sea turtles around these island, making them divers' perfect underwater paradise.
