I haven't been diving in Costa Rica so far, but this site is usually a good reference.

The most important is that you visit Costa Rica during the dry season, otherwise the visibility under water us bad.

There several good destinations for diving. In the north Playas del Coco, Flamingo and in the south Drake Bay.

There are several small islands in the Pacific which can be reached during a day trip.

I've dived several places in Costa Rica during my 18 years there but nothing there some close to what you see in the Caribbean, with the notable exception of Isla del Coco which is spectacular.

But the only way to get there is with a liveaboard so it's a little pricey to say the least :-).
