Wahoo Fishing & Tours will take you to two protected areas, Cahuita National Park and the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. You will get the opportunity for snorkeling there. If you are a expert diver you can enjoy the off-shore reef formations with depth ranging from 4-60 meters and you might catch  snails, harvest octopus, conches, and even the spiny lobster for a delicious dinner fresh from the sea. If the weather and sea is safe enough for typical tour then you might go for one or  two dive stops in Punta Mona which is a common feeding site for the dolphins. If you go for a short jungle hike you’re likely to see sloths, howler monkeys, poison dart frogs and a variety of birds. If you are lucky, you might also be able to see the rare Great Green Macaw. If you chose a half day or full day tour you can to the Southern tip of Costa Rica near the Sixaola River and take a peek at Panama from the sea which is the best place to find the Tarpon, a feisty, flashy game fish, better for playing than eating.
