When to Visit Costa Rica

There is no bad time to visit Costa Rica, although there are two different seasons to consider, the dry, which runs from December through April, and the green, from May through November. Along the Caribbean coast, it’s typically humid, hot, and rainy year-round, with a short break in September and October. The drier season is the peak tourist season, but many prefer to be here during the wetter season as you can enjoy sunny mornings that are ideal for excursions with afternoon rain showers ideal for rejuvenating. The crowds are fewer, the wildlife more active, and you might find discounted accommodation rates too.
