Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful, and offers an abundance of activities for even the most discerning travelers. From zip lining in the forests, to rafting in the rain forest, you will find yourself on an adventure of a lifetime. Here is the lowdown.
Best Time To Go
High season is December through April, with warm weather, but often larger crowds and high prices. The rest of the year is green season, with better deals and regular rain showers. October is the wettest month, so avoid traveling then if you want to maximize your beach time.
Costa Rica has a tropical climate, and two different sides, the Pacific side and the Caribbean side, with a wet and a dry season each year, on the Pacific side and occasional showers throughout the year on the Caribbean side. Make note, that Costa Rica’s weather varies wildly depending on which side of the country you’re visiting.
