Hula Kai has introduced its new Manta Ray Night Snorkel and Dive making it Kona’s first-class manta adventure. Just before sunset, guests are whisked away from the pier at Keauhou Bay and arrive a few minutes later at Manta Village, in water around 25 feet deep, to observe the sea’s most graceful creatures. Staff members are on hand to serve warm soup, delicious breads, hot drinks and other snacks. The two and a half hour Hula Kai excursion departs Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The cost per snorkeler is only $89 including snorkel gear and wetsuit, $110 for certified divers including equipment. 



Costa Rica has just completed it’s newest national park, Los Quetzales, covering approximately 4,000 acres. It’s approximately 1205 km southeast of San Jose. The park was previously called Reserva Los Santos.  The new name, Los Quetzales, is derived from the unique emerald-green and ruby-red quetzal bird which lives high in the canopies of the Talamanca Hills. The park is located in one of the rainiest parts of the country with an altitude of 2,800 metres. Among some of the endangered species located here are the quetzal, puma, jaguar and tapir.

Additionally , the park is home to 3 types of forests and 14 ecosystems. The park owes its extreme biodiversity to the 7 diferent levels of altitude that house 25 unique local species, 116 types of mammals, and wetlands such as seasonal lagoons. With direct charter flights from Vancouver and many other Canadian gateways there has never been a better time to visit Costa Rica.
