Caño Island is situated just 12 nautical miles from Aguila de Osa Inn, and can be seen just minutes after leaving the protected cove of the hotel. The boat ride to the Park entrance takes approximately 45 minutes, during which time you might be lucky enough to see whales and/or dolphins frolicking in the ocean.

Your tour to Caño Island includes ample time to snorkel in front of the ranger station. This will provide snorkelers with an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the underwater terrain and sea life surrounding Caño Island. The dark, volcanic rock is home to numerous species of marine life, much of which you'll see just a short swim from the beach. As well, you'll have time for a relatively short hike, which begins just behind the ranger station.

After an initial climb, the trail tapers off and remains rather flat throughout the remainder of your hike. Caño Island is not know for its prolific wildlife, however, the Park does have rodents, crustaceans, amphibians, birds, lizards, and insects. As well, there are archeological remains on the island, which can be found at the very end of one of the island's trails. Small, completely round spheres can be observed, which is believed date back to the days when the island was inhabited by indians.

This tour includes lunch, which comes complete with a variety of tropical fruits and drinks, salad, sandwiches, and snacks, i.e. cookies. Lunch is prepared and served around midday, along the beach, just to the right side of the Ranger Station. There are benches and shaded areas for those who need a reprieve from the hot sun. The Park Ranger Station has an office, public bathrooms, an outdoor, freshwater shower, and storage area.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
