Secrets of Costa Rica

Best time to travel to Costa Rica.jpg

Best time of year to travel to Costa Rica

We frequently get the same questions: when is the best time to travel to Costa Rica? How can I make sure that when I get there tours will not get canceled by rain?

 

Well, one thing is for sure: IT RAINS IN COSTA RICA AND YOU WILL GET WET!! Even in summer in Costa Rica you may get rain depending on where you visit.

 

But do not let rain spoil that Costa Rica Vacation Package you so excitedly awaited.

 

 

COSTA RICA SUMMER

 

At the Pacific Coast: summer happens during the months of December through March.

  • Places that are almost rain free: the Guanacaste Area and especially the Northern Pacific Coast

At the Atlantic Coast and mid Northern and Southern Costa Rica: summer happens during the months of September through November

 

  • Places that are almost rain free: none! Even at the Caribbean, where you will get drier weather than during the rest of the year, you will still and most probably get some rain. You will also get less rain at Arenal: and the chances to see the Arenal Volcano will be so much greater during these months.

At mid Center: summer happens during the months of December through March.

 

  • Places such as San Jose and Alajuela (Poas Volcano), will get more rain that at the Pacific Coast but less rain as the Atlantic Coast. Not only these provinces are in the middle of the country but they are also in the middle of extreme weathers.

COSTA RICA RAINY SEASON

 

At the Pacific Coast: rainy season happens during the months of September through beginning of November.

 

  • Places that are drier at the Pacific Coast: the northern part of the coast. Places such as Tamarindo, Papagayo and Pinilla.

At the Atlantic Coast and mid Northern and Southern Costa Rica: rainy season happens during the months of December through April and June through September.

At mid Center: rainy season happens during the months of September through beginning of November.

 

  • Just as summer, cities located in the middle of the country are less rainy than the Pacific at this time and rainier than the Atlantic.

But you should NOT worry about Costa Rica rainy season: all tours still go on and some are even more fun when it rains.

 

  • Best things to do in Costa Rica when it rains: white water rafting, canyoning, bathing at Costa Rica hot springs, and visiting the volcanoes (Arenal, Poas and Irazu). Rain pushes aside fog and volcanoes becomes visible and picture ready.

 

Plus, rainy season in Costa Rica equals PROMOTIONS, LOWER RATES AND LESS CROWDS. So coming to Costa Rica during that time of year can actually work out better for your budget and your patience!
