Secrets of Costa Rica

Best time to visit Costa Rica

Best time to visit Costa Rica

We frequently get the same questions whenever Green Season is about to start: Does it rain all day? Will I be stranded in my room because of the 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 this will not stop you from enjoying your stay in Costa Rica. And so, we firmly believe that Green Season is one of the Best times to Visit Costa Rica.

 

Here is a look at other Seasons. Read, compare, and let us know which times fits your needs and expectations best.

 

COSTA RICAN 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.

 

  • Places such as Arenal, Corcovado, Tortuguero and Manuel Antonio will get rainier during those months

 

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.

 

 Hot Springs in Costa Rica

 

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 fog aside and volcanoes becomes visible and picture ready.

 

Plus, rainy season in Costa Rica equals PROMOTIONS, LOWER RATES AND NO CROWDS. Coming to Costa Rica during that time of year can actually work out better for your budget and your patience, because you will get to book your Costa Rica hotel at the Best Places to Stay in Costa Rica, for half of what you would pay during Holiday Season.
