Caño Island Tour

Southern Pacific




About the Tour

Located 10 miles off the Western coast of the Osa peninsula, the island has white beaches, rocky platforms and cliffs. The existence of stone spheres, tombs with statues of the same material, gold offerings, and polychrome ceramic leads to believe that the island was used solely for a burial ground for important people during the Pre-Columbian era. The tour includes ample time to snorkel.

The dark, volcanic rock is home to numerous species of marine life, many of it can be seen after a short swim from the beach. Due to the coral reefs around the island it’s a great opportunity to see a fantastic number of fish, rays and sometimes turtles. There will also be time to do a short walk or just to enjoy the beautiful beach sheltered by coconut palms.
