Rica has 3.5% of World's Marine Biodiversity

Despite Costa Rica's small size (even including it's territorial waters) a recent study cataloged more than 6,777 species. That represents about 3.5% of the world's known marine species. This includes marine life found around famed Isla del Coco an absolute nature reserve that has gained fame because of it's amazingly dense fish and shark populations. This can also be appreciated in many prime diving locations where sharks, large fish, coral formations and whales can be seen. Costa Rica also is known for the diversity of it's land species and has been dubbed 'the most intensely biodiverse place on the planet' by National Geographic.
