The Quality of Visibility

The most common question from our customers is ¨how good is the visibility and what type of fish can we expect to see?¨

The visibility quality will depend on various factors such as time of day and time of the year.

Costa Rica has many rivers which end up connecting to the pacific ocean and sometimes depending on the weather, much of the water that comes from the rivers are a little murky.  We recommend that anyone who is interested in snorkeling first get in touch with us and we will help you determine what is the best time to go as well as an accurate visibility report.
