Supposedly the best diving in Costa Rica departs from Drake's Bay and tours the area around Isla de Coco. The area is a Unesco World Heritage site and is well known for world class diving and hammerhead shark populations. There are also diving businesses on the Caribbean coast although I have heard the diving is sub-par.

There's a couple from Longmont that have a diving lodge out of Drake's, you can browse their site at:

Good luck!

Yes, my wife and i went a couple times...we did pacific coast stuff actually at the isla de cana which is the closer and much cheaper couzin to coco (jurasic park island).
If you drive down the pacific coast highway south from san jose you will see a few operations on the cost highway. stop early and take the longest boat ride posible to the island (you may see whales).

it is expensive (100 per, plus rentals and park fees) it is super cool though!
I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!

Dove east coast, Puerto Viejo, too much surf, real murky waters not much visability and not a lot to see. I'd say go west (Coco) if you wanna dive.
