   Dove with Cano Divers, and stayed at their bungalows overlooking the
ocean, which is at Pirate Cove:  Comfortable and
friendly people diving or going to large park in the Drake's Bay area. 
Everyone ate breakfest and dinner at the same time, and hosts created a
happy atmosphere.  Diving Isla de Cano is about $125/day for 2 dives and a
lunch on the island.  DM Erik was very good, and we never had more than 6
divers, some in training with another instructor.  There are a half dozen
dive sites in front of island, 50 to 60 feet over coral clumps in sand,
which cut the vis to about 40 feet, but we usualy saw a half dozen whitetip
sharks, a half dozen mobula, and large stingrays, eels, and a resident
school of 100 horse-eyed jacks.  I like big water, so the primier site for
me was Devils Rock, a couple miles off the west coast of Isle de Cano.  Vis
about 80 feet, and half dozen to a dozen whitetips hunting, Mobula cruising
overhead, 200 amberjacks, 100 horse-eyed jacks, few hunting tunas,
groupers, and 8 ft nurse shark.  No Mantas, but this is their type of
water.  Excellent Costa Rican diving, like Cat and Bat Islands can be if
the vis is good off Playa del Coco.
