Costa Rica has both a tropical and subtropical climate. The highlands of Costa Rica stand out for having a cooler climate. Yet, despite being located near the equator, the country’s average annual temperature ranges in the 70s.
There are two seasons in Costa Rica; dry season, ranging from December to April, and rainy season, ranging from May to November.
The country recently became more flexible in terms of its tourist visa policies, doubling the amount of time that
visitors can stay here without a visa from three to six months.
Plus, Costa Rica has a rich weather diversity as it is positioned on the isthmus and just above the equator.
For instance, some places like Guanacaste and San Ramon near the Pacific can be dry, with many tropical dry forests.
Meanwhile, Isla Calero, near the Caribbean Ocean, is very wet and has a very humid weather with rain almost throughout the year.
The dry season also means the high season in Costa Rica, as the country sees almost no rain from December to April.
During this time, beach spots and eco-tourism packages are at full burst.
It is advisable to book as early as possible for this season if you don’t want to find yourself out of vacancies and get the best deals. If you don’t mind the crowd, this is the best time to go.
