Scuba Diving Costa Rica. One of the many natural attractions that Costa Rica offers its visitors is scuba diving. And one of the key areas for this kind of activity is the Catalina Islands, where unique rock formations resulting from volcanic activity provide diving lovers with the chance to admire a myriad of sea-life species present at this site — including manta rays, white-fin and bull sharks, barracudas, sea turtles, starfish, and many more.
Catalina Islands is located 15-20 minutes in boat from Flamingo Beach in Guanacaste.
Experts agree that the best time to enjoy the close to 20 diving sites available at Catalina Islands is between December and May. There is still time to make the manta ray season this year but anytime is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in these incredible underwater rock formations.
Some divers have claimed that during these months they have seen manta rays 14 to 20 feet long in a single dive. It's important to point out that on these diving spots undersea currents are stronger and more challenging, so it requires a little more skills that the local dives.
For folks diving with us at the Indian Ocean like Aliwal Shoal or Protea Banks a piece of cake.
The current is less as at that shark dives.
