When Is The Best Time To Visit Costa Rica?
We'll get right to the point: There is no "bad time" to visit Costa Rica. Being close to the equator, our tropical paradise is bathed in sun almost year-round and temperatures are very comfortable. Costa Rica is a tropical country and has distinct wet and dry seasons. However, some regions are rainy all year, and others are very dry and sunny for most of the year. Temperatures vary primarily with elevations, not with seasons: On the coasts, it’s hot all year; in the mountains, it can be cool at night any time of year. Generally, the rainy season (or “green season”) is from May to mid-November in most of the country, with notable exceptions on the Caribbean coast. Costa Ricans call this wet time of year their winter. The dry season, considered summer by Costa Ricans, is from mid-November to April. Even in the rainy season, days often start sunny, with rain falling in the afternoon and evening. You’ll be satisfied no matter what time of year you visit, but there are certain characteristics that define each season here.
The best time to visit Costa Rica depends on what you and your family/friends want to experience. The most popular time of year to visit Costa Rica is in December and January, but we promise you will enjoy it no matter what time of year!
