Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Puntarenas / Osa Peninsula / Drake Bay / Cano Island
Head out to Cano Island, an island rich in wildlife and history. Located 16 km (10 mi) west of mainland Costa Rica, the island was inhabited in pre-Columbian times, with evidence of a community here including mysterious, hand-carved stone spheres.
