The best time to go to Costa Rica
In general, the best time to visit Costa Rica is in the drier months between November and April. However, due to the microclimates, Costa Rica can be enjoyed all year round with the right amount of planning.
With two very different coastlines along the Pacific coast and the Caribbean coast, and everything from dense tropical rainforest to mist-shrouded cloud forest and mountains in between, Costa Rica has a wide climate and diverse rainfall which means the best time may slightly differ depending on which parts of the country you wish to travel. The average temperatures in Costa Rica range from 30ºC along the coasts to a milder climate in the cloud forest areas of Santa Elena and Monteverde, where it can dip to 10ºC at night.
You are likely to experience a vast range of weather on any trip at any time of year, even in the dry season, particularly if you are planning to incorporate a lot of the natural highlights into your itinerary. However, the climate of Costa Rica is why it is so beautifully bio-diverse.
