Diving with Purpose

Costa Rica’s territory may be small, but our maritime zone is a vast, magnificent, fragile underwater paradise. These fascinating programs are an open door to enjoy, learn, raise awareness, get involved, and be part of our commitment to nature.

Our commitment to nature is a perennial challenge. Therefore, we strive to work with the best local organizations and specialists in the field and promote Citizen Science. Citizen Science allows people to contribute to the scientific community of Costa Rica, where data collected by volunteers is as valuable as that collected by scientists.
