Ocean Ports of Call

Cano Island - Costa Rica Highlights:
Biological Reserve, Granite spheres, Swimming and Snorkelling
Caņo Island lies 10 miles offshore from the Osa Peninsula on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. This protected Pacific island is a treasure of brilliant marine life and mysterious pre-Columbian artifacts. The Cano Island Biological Reserve is best known for its inshore coral reefs and its importance as a pre-Colombian cemetery. There are many tombs and artifacts yet to be found such as pestles, corn grinding tables, and granite spheres which are slowly disappearing in the rain forest. The perfectly round stone spheres, some up to 6 feet in diameter, estimated to be 1,500 years old were found here and few other places in the world. A well-maintained trail will take you into a verdant rain forest where some of these artifacts can be seen.

Walking in the jungle, you might see some real Boa Constrictors, giant frogs, and several mammal species such as the Marsupial and Paca. The flora and fauna of this island is one of the most diverse in the hemisphere and the island is surrounded by secluded, almost white beaches which attract several turtle species. If you like to snorkel you can see some brilliant tropical fish, Moray Eels, Sea Cucumbers and the small Reef Sharks among the abundant coral beds. Offshore waters are teeming with Bottled-Nosed Dolphins, Manta Rays, Sperm- Pilot- and Humpback Whales.
