into some of the country's most beautiful and least visited places: Corcovado National Park, Golfo Dulce, and Isla del Can
"The time at Bosque del Cabo was magical. Their property is walking distance from Cabo Matapalo and we took the trail to Playa Matapalo. I did not understand before coming that these beaches are more for looking at or surfing. So, we foolishly brought snorkel gear. Playa Pan Dulce is safe for swimming but it's rocky and was hard to enter at low tide. Being from Colorado, a land locked state in the US, we have limited understanding of the ocean. So, on a future visit to Costa Rica, I would like to know where good snorkeling might exist, if anywhere. So, the time at Bosque del Cabo was marvelous and exceeded expectations. And, the area of Cabo Matapalo was very pretty (and again, filled with amazing wildlife including incredible monkeys and birds). But, we had to shift our expectations for swimming and snorkeling to just enjoying the beauty. No complaints. Just our ignorance and incorrect expectations. I do want to learn to surf and would make a plan to set that up some time if snorkeling is not something that can be done in Costa Rica. I will need to research more for our next visit. "
