Adventure to Cocos Island


Ever since it was first discovered less than half a century after the New World itself, Cocos Island, lying midway between Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, has served as a siren to the adventuresome. Here you can answer that call yourself by exploring the island and its wildlife-rich waters, delving into its legendary history, and following an expedition to film the island's wonders. Also, fly over the island in an ultralight aircraft.
