Cocos Island National Park is located 550 km off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and is the only island in the tropical eastern Pacific with a tropical rainforest. The interactions between the island and the marine ecosystem and its position relative to the northern equatorial counter-current make it a fascinating laboratory for studying biological systems and it has a large number of endemic plant species. The waters off the island are rated as some of the best diving waters in the world to view large pelagic species such as sharks, rays, tuna and dolphins.
