We left our hostel Hibiscus Garden 7am in order to make it to the dive shop by 8am. The drive was only about 20 minutes by a hostel provided shuttle, but we had to get food and water before we went to Coiba as we were told there was none available on the island.
Diving was expensive- we were told it was $115 for a two tank dive but oh, they forgot to tell us if we didn’t have our own equipment it was $15 extra, and entrance fee to Coiba was $20, and Tax, plus I rented an underwater camera for $25 and the battery died after the first dive. Thanks, douchebags.
I was really hoping to see a whale shark which are giant but we didn’t see any. There are also hump back whales here from June to September. There are also manta rays and turtles which we caught a glimpse of but I didn’t get a picture. We are snorkeling on our way back so maybe I’ll get some pictures then or fingers crossed a whale shark!
From the lonely planets description we thought it was pretty much going to be us 3 on a deserted beach. Disappointingly, this was not the case.
Looking at the photo I’m sure you don’t feel that bad for us..
We spent the rest of the evening hanging out playing card games and passed out early after an exhausting day.
My brother smelled up the tiny tent we rented with this dirty socks and when I went in he was sprawled across the whole floor so I opted to sleep in a hammock. I had a light sleeping bag and bug net for my head so I was good.
