Where to snorkel in Costa Rica?
There is an ongoing debate in Costa Rica about whether the Pacific or Caribbean side of the nation is best for various water activities. some top spots for snorkeling can be found on the Caribbean side. However, the lay of the land actually makes the Pacific better overall as far as reef and water quality go. (Banana plantations tend to have run off into the Caribbean side, which has destroyed much of the reefs on that side.)
The absolute best snorkeling conditions will typically be from September until January. But there are more months of the year, and Rich Coast Diving can guide you to the best areas. Visibility changes on a daily basis but we can usually find a good spot. The boat leaves in the early morning and returns just before lunch. A PADI professional will guide you to 2 different sites and you will be able to enjoy big schools of fish, sharks, rays and hopefully turtles. The marine life is pretty seasonal and visibility related. plankton brings in many types of rays, dolphins and even the giant humpback Whales. On the boat, we serve snacks, drinks, and fruit. Price including gear is $45 per person
