Papagayo Gulf. Guanacaste Province.
Full day tour.
The Gulf of Papagayo offers some of the Pacific Ocean’s most interesting marine diversity. The plankton-rich waters support numerous species from big to small. On any given day you may see frogfish, harlequin clown shrimp, seahorses, and octopus, or you might have a lucky encounter with schooling eagle rays, white tip reef sharks, giant Pacific manta rays, or a passing whaleshark. It is a great place to study animal behavior, and the perfect location to be in the middle of the action.
Seasons The north pacific coast of Costa Rica has two distinct seasons: wet and dry. The dry season, from December through April, is most noted for its northerly winds that drop the water temperature down into the low to mid-70’s.This cooler water is host to humpback whales, whale sharks, giant pacific manta rays, and hordes of roving southern stingrays. The wet season, from June through November, is the time to enjoy warmer water reaching into the mid-80’s, and a bit of an increase in the average 35-foot visibility. It is this time of year when you might see the massive schools of golden rays, and when encounters with sharks become an exciting reality.
