We visited this as part of our stay at Aquila de Osa. It is the place where all the snorkelling/diving trips land before starting the activities. Be aware there are no bathroom facilities on the island.

We went to Cano Island with Piccolina tours. On the way we saw some dolphins jumping out of the water. Though you won't be the only one snorkelling at Cano Island it is still quite rewarding to go there. During the snorkelling you'll wear a...More

Not to be missed even as someone who is not a strong and accomplished snorkeler. The trip usually involves a boat trip to Cano Island. A first Snorkel and then a visit to the Island Beach and visitor Centre followed by a second Snorkelling session....More

One of the tours we took was to Cano Island. There were beautiful fish to see. We were not disappointed in the least. The water was perfect and we all enjoyed this tour immensely.

An hour's drive south of the Manuel Antonio area, this tour had us speeding 30 miles out on a 20-passenger boat (like a small bus), to get to the Cano Island marine preserve. There we donned our flippers, flotation vest, mask & snorkel, and ogled...More

We did a half-day trip from La Paloma and had very good snorkeling. Unfortunately, there are a lot of visitors to this site so don't expect to have the place to yourself. We saw quite a few turtles, a few white-tip sharks, and lots of...More

Took an excursion from La Paloma - about 30 minutes to get to Cano. This is very nice snorkeling but it is from a boat. If looking to snorkel from the beach, this is not the place. The ocean was a bit rough on the...More
