Isla del Coco
(11 Days / 10 Nights)

Cocos Island, located 600 km (approx. 320 nautical miles) off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, is one of the most beautiful jewels in the Costa Rican National Park system. Of the principal islands of the Eastern Tropical Pacific (Cocos, Clipperton, Malpelo and Galapagos), it is the only one that receives sufficient rainfall to support a tropical rain forest. Since Cocos is an oceanic island, it has relatively few land species, some having their origin as far away as the Indian Ocean. Escape to Cocos Island a lush, green uninhabited island resting 375 miles off Costa Ricas Pacific coast. Rocky pinnacles surrounding Cocos are beacons for big animals and big action. Schooling hammerheads, countless white-tip sharks, mantas, tuna and even whale sharks call Cocos home. Weather permitting, Guests are shuttled ashore to hike through the jungles of Cocos and swim in its many waterfalls. Transfers from San Jose are provided on the day of departure. An overnight stay is required in San Jose prior to the charter.

Pick up by bus from certain hotels and transfer to Puntarenas where you will board the vessel. The drive takes about 2 hours, and gives you a chance to view the lush forest and rich farmland of the region. 

Due to occasional low tides our boats may need to depart from the pier earlier in the day. Should this occur, you will be transferred by skiff to the vessel. When all passengers have arrived on board, the vessel will take a 32-36 hour cruise out to Cocos Island.
