August 23rd, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) Isla de Caño is a known destination in Costa Rica to go whale watching, but this year some visitors have seen some surprise visitors – Killer Whales, also known as Orcas.
Killer Whales are not common to Costa Rican waters. Experts believe they are in search of food. The animals usually eat the calves of whales born near-shore, but generally prefer colder waters.
So far there have been about eight sightings.
Isla de Caño is a small island in the Bahia de Corcovado (Corcovado Bay) on the Pacific side of Costa Rica, about 10 miles west of Punta Llorona on the Osa Peninsula. It has been established as a protected national park.
