The best time to go to Costa Rica
Costa Rica enjoys a huge variety in its geography, with two very different coastlines and everything from dense tropical rainforest to mist-shrouded cloud forest and mountains in between. This means you are likely to experience a vast range of weather on any trip at any time of year, particularly if you are planning to incorporate a lot of the natural highlights into your itinerary. The average temperatures in Costa Rica range from 30ºC on the Pacific and Caribbean coasts to a milder climate in the cloud forest areas of Santa Elena and Monteverde, where it can dip to 10ºC at night.
As a general rule of thumb, there is a rainy season and a dry season, which you can follow when planning your trip to this wonderfully biodiverse country.
