Costa Rica will simply offers natural beaches, still untouched, where mass tourism is not covered. An ocean full of surprises, ideal for many activities, from deep sea fishing to scuba diving …
It starts from the Flamingo Marina, 3 km from the village, equipped with boats for deep sea fishing. Americans and Canadians are among the first you enjoy this sport. Particularly in these rich waters, the fishing is not exploited as a resource of the country.
During the trip, you will be attracted by many blue marlin that are encountered in the open ocean.
The name “snorkel” refers to the observation of the seabed from the floating surface wearing mask and fins. Unlike apnea it takes place on the surface and breathing, for this snorkel is affordable for almost everyone and requires a limited muscular effort and knowledge of very few technical notions.
The diver tells …
“It was a wonderful day of January, the sea was flat and clear water. We were coming back from a dive the reefs of Roca Sucia, content and relaxed exchanging the various sensations, when suddenly the commander Miguel shouts: “Tiburon Ballena”. I turn around and just meters from our boat there was a baby shark whale of at least 7 meters swimming on the water.
Without giving time to the other sub understand and organize myself and Andrea, a diving instructor, we slip the mask, we dive into the water and swim with him for at least ten minutes. I will never forget those big eyes staring at me curiously. Even after more than a thousand dives, this meeting will be an unforgettable experience. Diving among dozens of hammerhead sharks, white tip encounters with solitary. And still kick strokes breathlessly alongside giant manta rays, large whale sharks. And while we swim, do not forget to keep an eye on the bottom, which is also rich in fish that goes in and out from the crevices in the rock open.
