The paradisiacal of Costa Rica’s Isla del Coco (Cocos Island) is embodied in a video by the Undersea Hunter Group and shared on social networks this week by the Fundación Amigos de la Isla del Coco (Faico) – Foundation Friends of Cocos Island.

The video, recorded in 2012 by Ofer Ketter in a helicopter flown by Simon Bratby, capatures the lush vegetation and some of the beaches that characterize the land a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997.
