As reports vacationscostarica.com, National Geographic has just come back from Costa Rica’s Isla de Coco (Coco’s Island) which lies 500km West of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast and has stated that it is one of the most purest and cleanest places on the planet. Isla de Coco should not be confused wth Playas del Coco, a popular beach in the Guanacaste region of northern Costa Rica.
