Cocos Island is probably Costa Rica's most well-known and popular island destination. Located 375 miles (600 km) from the Pacific Coast, the island is in the same class as the Galapagos Islands, which lie on the same underwater volcanic ridge. Jacques Cousteau called Cocos "the most beautiful island in the world" for a reason - it is an amazing, lush green and uninhabited island. Its beautiful turquoise water features a wide diversity of marine life: schooling hammerheads, white-tip sharks, mantas, tunas and whale sharks. The landscape of the island is mountainous and irregular and includes four bays, a number of short rivers, an infinite number of submarine caves and over 200 waterfalls, some of which fall into the sea!
Numerous plant and animal species are endemic to Cocos and the island is a extraordinary place for natural discovery. Visitors are allowed to enter Wafer Bay and Chatham Bay, where you will find a few facilities including dining huts, rest areas and sanitary services and showers.
