They are very similar dogs, similar in looks and temperament.
I believe that cane corso dogs do better in small houses/ apartments where as a presa canario needs more space.
If you plan to show your dog, the body types are quite different, the head size, the tallness and longevity of the body.
The biggest difference I know of is that the canario is a created breed, they were added to the mastiff family, cane corso is a natural breed of the mastiff family.
Depending on the person (mostly show dog owners) people will say the temperament of the cane corso is more mean, but I own a 6 month old cane corso puppy and she is just a doll.
Good luck with your search!

Presa Canario is a large dog breed that was originally bred for working livestock. The name of this breed is Spanish, means "Canarian catch dog", and is often shortened to "Presa". Sometimes it is also called Dogo Canario.
Presa Canario is a dog with a thick and muscular body. Its head is broad, massive, square, and powerful. Its ears are normally cropped to create a more formidable expression and to prevent damage while working with cattle. Males have a height range of 23 to 26 inches at the withers and a maximum weight of 126 pounds. Females have a height between 22 to 25 inches with a maximum weight of 110 pounds.
The Cane Corso is an Italian dog breed that is highly valued in as a companion, guard and hunting dog. It is closely related to the Neapolitan Mastiff. It is well muscled and less bulky than most other Mastiff breeds. The dog’s height is 24–28 inches, with females in the lower range and males in the higher. Weight should be ranging from 110 to 130 lb.

cane corso | perro de presa canario
italian | spanish
black, dark grey, blue, ligth brown, red or brindle | brindle from dark too ligth grey/yellow/red
males 64-68 cm/females 60-64 cm +/- 4 cm | male 59-64 cm/females 55-59 cm
goes back too roman times | based on original dogs on the canary islands mixed with mastiffs and bulldogs the english brougth with them
so basic gist one is a newer smaller breed wich have too be brindle, the other is an old breed where some colors of solid is allowed and its bigger in size
and i am sure if you open the fci standards and compare them you will find more differences
you find them under standards, and the names from their home countries so on the presa canario you have too look at perro de presa canario
