Based on the history of Maui (Hawaii), people who have found travelling to the island expensive to explore are already having wrong impressions about it.

The five best islands less explored that tourist goes to have Pura Vida experience is in Costa Rica. Costa Rica has a volcanic landscape and extraordinary wildlife on its mainland. Here are some of the less explored islands in Costa Rica you may not know.
Isla Del Coco’s island
Located 550km from Costa Rica’s mainland, Isla Del Coco is rich in natural wonders, buried golden treasures and marine life. As visitors feel a rare sense of seclusion, they still have an excellent atmosphere to hike around its volcanic carved cliffs and valleys. Large schools of hammerhead sharks and other water creatures are spotted offshore between July to November and December to March every year.
Tortuguero National Park
Tortuguero is not technically an island, but a sandbar island located in the North East of Costa Rica’s mainland that visitors can access only through a boat. One of the most significant wildlife experience you can have as a tourist is how you will see tortoise nest their eggs on the beaches of Tortuguero National Park. The beach spans 350km along the Northeast coast of Costa Rica and can only be visited between Julys to early October which is the nesting period for the tortoise.
San Lucas Island
San Lucas was formerly an isolated Island to Costa Rica’s most undesirable politicians and most violent criminals. The prison was closed down in 1991 and transformed into a national wildlife refuge. It has natural waters making it one of only two islands in the Gulf of Nicoya and getting up-close with marine life is one of the highlights of visiting San Lucas. For a more in-depth experience on how to explore the island, you can make use of a tour guide so that you can have a better understanding of the Island.
Cano Island is an island located offshore of Drake Bay. Biologically, its reserves are used as an avenue to protect some of Costa Rica’s most precious elements which include ancient artefacts that are dated back to pre-Columbian times. If you would love to stay dry, you can take a whale-watching trip to the island between December and April so that you can have the chance of spotting 40-ton humpback whales return from their feeding ground in Alaska.
This island is located in the upper end of the Gulf of Nicoya and 33 km from San Lucas Island, making the island accessible to access.
