Cano Island Vs Playas del Coco

Hi Everyone,

I'll be backpacking through Costa Rica early-mid September. I'm an avid diver and have been researching Cano Island and also Playas, where do people recommend?

Have read a few different reviews online, some recommending Cano, others Playas. What site has the best chance of Sharks/Manats etc...

Thanks a Lot

Costa Rica or Cozumel?

Planning our 20th anniversary trip and it’s between Cozumel and Costa Rica. What can I expect in March of next year as far as wildlife, visibility, weather, etc. ? Been to Cozumel several times but maybe you can convince me to come to CR. Thank you

Hi Steve. I've been to Cozumel 3 years ago, it was quite a nice spot but not as good as Mahahual in the very South East of Mexico (it's much wilder and there's no huge boats). Costa Rica is still great for inlands adventures and the jungle. The sea is mostly doomed and there are not much sharks still alive in CR...

Cocos Island, Socorro or Galapagos?

I have a possibility to go one of these places with liveaboard. Which one to choose just based on

a) dive conditions

b) wild life

c) water temperature (I like warm water)

Thanks for any tips / experiences!

Socorro for sure, especially if you prefer the warmer water

Cocos Island versus French Polynesia

i am currently looking to undertake a big dive trip... so far i am looking at either Cocos Island or French Polynesia and am struggling to decide.

Has anyone any experience of either and what time of year did you go?

I was looking at Malpelo only Columbian government closed it off currently.

Many thanks

I haven't been to French Polynesia yet, but I was at Cocos this past July/August and can definitely recommend it. This is my trip report http://www.divereport.com/dive-reports/6404/hundreds-of-hammerheads

Roatan mid-October

My husband and I are looking for a quick getaway dive trip and have Roatan or Belize in mind. What is the visibility and weather like during this time - especially after the crazy hurricanes the Caribbean has just experienced?
