Cocos Island is a lush, green uninhabited island resting 342 miles off Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Surrounded by deep waters with counter-currents, Cocos Island is admired and highly regarded by scuba divers for its populations of Hammerhead sharks, rays, dolphins and other large marine species.
The island itself is uninhabited, but the water here is everything but that. The rich coral reef, volcanic tunnels, caves, massifs and deeper waters surrounding Cocos Island are home to more than 30 species of coral, 60 species of crustaceans, 600 species of molluscs and over 300 species of fish. These include large populations of yellowfin tuna, giant mantas, sailfish and sharks, such as Whitetip reef shark and Scalloped hammerhead shark. The largest of all species of fish is also present, the whale shark. If this location isn’t on your bucket list, it should be!
