Cano Island, Drake Bay

4.0
Head out to Cano Island, an island rich in wildlife and history. Located 16 km (10 mi) west of mainland Costa Rica, the island was inhabited in pre-Columbian times, with evidence of a community here including mysterious, hand-carved stone spheres. Take a boat out into the surrounding marine environment to catch sights of breaching whales and dolphins. The coral reefs that surround the island have become known for their biodiversity; you can take a dive into the blue to see manta rays, sea turtles, and white-tipped reef sharks.
