Go below the Surface Snorkeling in Costa Rica

It’s no surprise that Costa Rica is a top vacation destination for those looking to enjoy a tropical getaway. From lush rainforests to sandy beaches, Costa Rica has it all. Visitors who book their stay at El Castillo Boutique Luxury Hotel have some of the best examples of this breathtaking scenery right at their fingertips. Explore nearby national parks like Corcovado National Park or Marino Ballena National Park. Another great way to experience the beauty of this region of Costa Rica is snorkeling at one of the best spots around.

How to Go Snorkeling at Caño Island

Just off shoreline near Corcovado National Park is Caño Island, or Isla del Caño. This island is not only a great place to witness breathtaking scenery, but it is also a marine biological reserve. It is also a place of geographical and archeological importance. It was once a burial ground dating to the pre-Columbian era. 

Not much wildlife is found on the island itself, but it is used for passage by migratory birds. The true beauty of this island is experienced underwater. The waters around Caño Island are some of the bluest in Costa Rica and are filled with a variety of flora and fauna. 

These crystal clear waters make it easy to see everything from coral reefs to aquatic life like turtles, eels, fish, and more. One of the best ways to view this underwater world is snorkeling, and guests at El Castillo have a fantastic outing available to them.

The two-hour tour is offered Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and includes a beachside lunch. Explore the waters with a seasoned guide who will help swimmers navigate the turquoise waters and coral reefs.
