Comments Unfortunately the diving had very poor visibility, 15' to 30'max! Plenty of white tip sharks, jacks, barracuda, puffer fish etc. There are a lot of fish in these waters. But you just catch a glimpse of them due to the poor visibility except for the white tip sharks. You had to come right up to them before the moved. Barco was my favorite dive site.

The Aguila de Osa Inn has a very good dive operation. Vincent is an excellent dive master will let you dive your own profile.

If you are coming to this area do not focus entirely on diving, as you will be disappointed. Plan many of the land activities with a few dives. It is one of the most beautiful areas I have been to and if the visibility were 60 to 100 probably would have been very good to excellent diving.
