  • Diving Costa Rica's Coastline

    by Bill Macdonald
    Costa Rica, where a virgin rainforest meets the sea, has an impressive reef system along the Pacific coastline. Several locations are protected, some by the gov't. Other sites are protected by the locals as a dive tourist attraction. Good idea, there is plenty to see: sharks, mantas, and tropical fish, with critters hiding in the crevices. Despite the presence of hook and line fishermen, the reefs were well stocked with fish.
