When is the best time to go?
Travellers can visit Costa Rica any time of the year. Temperatures are relatively consistent year round, comfortably warm in the highlands and hot along the coasts. There are two distinct seasons based on typical rainfall, the wet and dry season. Dry Season: December - April (The Caribbean side experiences a dry season during Sept/Oct as well)
The best time to visit is usually considered to be the dry season, December to April, with only one or two rainy days per month in most regions. This is also the busiest time of year, especially during Christmas and Spring break. Travellers planning during those school holidays should try to plan at least six months in advance if possible.The coastal regions experience rainfall year round, especially on the Caribbean side, so seasonality is not as much of an issue there. In fact, travellers interested in seeing the sea turtles may want to travel during the wetter times. The sea turtle season begins in mid-March and usually continues through mid-August, with most of the young hatchlings appearing June through August.
