Visit the Peninsula de Nicoya! Print E-mail

Come and enjoy the green season on the beach!

The Gulf is a relatively shallow area of water with water depths of 50 meters or less for almost the entire inner Gulf. As one approaches Cabo Blanco the shelf starts to drop off rapidly to several hundred meters or more. As the inner part of the Gulf is mainly mangrove forests, it acts as the main nursery for a variety of marine species. This is one of the main reasons the Gulf can support the amount of fish and invertebrates it does.

The adult insect, sometimes called an imago, is usually 2 to 5 cm (1 to 2 inch) long, although some tropical species can reach 15 cm (6 inch), e.g. Pomponia imperatoria from Malaysia.

Swimming for Preservation Print E-mail

Renate Herberger was interviewed at Casa Colina / Santa Teresa after her day in the water. This was Renate's 38th day of swimming every day for 7-9 hours and covering between 15-20 kms each day. When we talked with 52-year-old Renate, the self-styled "Costa Rica Mermaid", originally from Baden-Baden, Germany, she had already swum a total of more than 600 kms in those 38 days.
