The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – An amateur video is causing a stir on social networks by showing a shark nonchalantly swimming a few meters from the sea shore.
The Facebook user, Mario Chacon shared the video taken by a friend of hers and said that it was shot between Avellanas and Langosta beach.
José Miguel Gutiérrez from the Coast Guard explained that amid these beaches is an area they called “the Wreck” due to several boats lying in the bottom of these waters and it is common for whitetail sharks to prowl the surroundings.
He said that there is minimal danger since people never swim here, although there is no official signage.
“It’s mostly an area where people go for fishing. Access is also complicated,” said the official.
He added that access is only on foot, so those who come across the “Wreck” are usually vacationers walking along another beach and find it.
Gutierrez said there are no warnings or complaints about this issue but it is worth cautioning Easter vacationers who are enjoying this area of the Pacific.
