Cocos Island Costa Rica

How many days you usually spend for an eco-adventure vacation? One week? One Month? In case you have ten days to spare and want to spend time with Mother Nature that is away from the noisy and buzzing tourist activity, then get ready to explore an offshore Pacific island paradise in Costa Rica called Cocos island. Note: Cocos isn’t a place for sportfishing, because it’s a national park, and a protected marine reserve. Here, the big fish we seek are able to mate and live more or less like they did before the oceans were filled with fishermen. We need more of these types of reserves to insure the seas aren’t depleted of gamefish. Why 10 days? Located 550 kilometers (340 miles) off the Pacific coast of mainland Costa Rica with no hotels or any form of accommodation on land, your only way to go and live in Cocos island is by signing up with a liveaboard cruise. Most of these liveaboard journeys are offered in a 10-day package. You will start by boarding your vessel in Puntarenas Port located in the southern coast of Costa Rica and embark on a 36-hour voyage out at sea en-route to Cocos island. As you climb up to your vessel, you may pause for a while and ask yourself where to stay since there are no hotels in the island. Upon entering your vessel, you will discover that it has several spacious air-conditioned rooms called cabins. You will also find a restaurant inspired dining hall where feasting in sumptuous meals is not a problem. All the features of your liveaboard vessel has earned it the name “Floating Hotel”. The 10th and last day of your journey is allocated in sailing back to mainland Costa Rica. But how about the remaining 8 days? Well, you don’t spend it sleeping, eating or drinking. Instead of storing fat in your system, you will rather burn it up with the eco-adventure trips lined up for you where adrenaline-loaded events are always part of your everyday activity. 10 Days of Wet and Wild Experience First, we would like to clarify that what we mean about “wet and wild” has nothing to do with what most teenagers do in a bar. What we really mean is the actual experience and environment that you will be exposed to. Get wet and Go Diving with Wild Sea Creatures If there is one reason on why you should go and spend your vacation in Cocos island, then there is no other reason aside from a scuba diving holiday. But of all places on Earth to spend your scuba vacation, why Cocos...
