Exotic Cocos Island - Big Animals. Big Action. Big Specials.
Escape to Cocos Island, a lush green uninhabited island resting 342 miles off Costa Rica's Pacific coast. Rocky pinnacles surrounding Cocos Island are beacons for big animals and big action. Schooling Hammerheads, countless White-Tip Sharks, Mantas, Giant Rays, Tuna and even Whale Sharks call Cocos home. Declared a Costa Rican National Park in 1978 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002, Cocos Island is home to the largest, most consistently reported schools of Hammerhead sharks in the world.Just spent Christmas 2013 in Cocos and going back this year in July...Cocos is addictive!
