Comment from Costa Rica!

Finally! While I was in England for the London Book Fair, I received a friendly comment on this posting from Martin & Brenda van Gestel, a Dutch couple living in Costa Rica! Okay, this is not a comment from Isla del Coco, but it is the next best thing and the comment is highly appreciated! Please click on the virtual island hopping label if you want to know what this is all about... And don't forget to check out Martin & Brenda's rich coast diving website!

Hi, I have not been to the islands yet, but I have met loads of people who have been. I also have the dvd of the island. I am a Dutch dive shop owner in Playas del Coco, Costa Rica and get to hear all the dive stories. The island is popular for the many sharks the divers encounter especially the famous hammer heads. People are not supposed to enter the island. They stay on the live aboard boats. I have seen great pictures also of a bird that seems to live there. The baby almost looks like a white poodle. Good luck on your search and if you want more details I can get some people to write for you.
