Caño Island is at the southern most tip of the Osa Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean side of Costa Rica.

It's considered to be one of the best snorkeling and diving areas of Costa Rica.

But this isolated, uninhabited island, isn't only for marine lovers, it's also one of the best beaches around, with gorgeous sunsets. And there's a small bonus.

You can hike up to the mirador point and along the way pass ancient burial grounds of the natives that lived here or buried here hundreds of years ago. None of them remain except for their loved ones and clay points and jewelry left in their original areas.
