Islas Catalinas

The Catalina Islands are a formation of volcanic pinnacles in the Costa Rican North Pacific Ocean, they are located 6 miles to the west of Flamingo. Thanks to the large continental shelf on the Pacific coast and changing currents that provide nutrients, these islands are considered a highly biodiverse point in the ecosystem. Conditions are variable during the year with in-water temperature dipping as low as 55ºF (13ºC) and reaching 86ºF (30ºC) depending on the season.
