Isla del Caño – Cano Island became a Biological Reserve in 1978 and is located in the southernmost tip of Costa Rica. It is the one you see from Corcovado National Park, in the Osa Peninsula. This is definitely one of the best Costa Rica islands.
During pre-Columbian times it was used as a cemetery for the local indigenous towns. Weirdly enough, it was also a key trading point.

Of course, its biggest attraction is its beaches and coral reefs. But it is also heaven for bird watchers and those who enjoy swimming among sealife.
This is where you get the best snorkeling and scuba diving in Costa Rica.
Another popular activity to do is to go to its coast to possibly see some whales as they migrate. Sea turtles also find it a cool place to visit and like to make its beaches home for their nests.
This was one of the many places that my family and I visited while living in Costa Rica, and definitely one of our favorite ones.
