San Lucas Island wildlife Refuge

San Lucas Island has held a fascination for people for many years.

The indigenous people used the island as a burial place from around 1,500-800 BC., and jade, gold stone and clay pieces have been discovered.

The island continues to fascinate, it is a remote and tranquil island, but there are many poignent reminders of the brutal past when the island operated as a prison modelled on Devil's Island.

It is one of only 2 islands in the gulf of Nicoya with natural fresh water, and this has encouraged the bilogical diversity you can enjoy today. There are a number of troops of Congo (Howler) monkeys, as well as deer, racoons, anteaters and other mammals. There are a number of bats, at least 8 different species, many of which live in or close to the old prison buildings.

Now you can visit the island and see for yourself the great beauty and the great sadness of this wonderful island.
