Best Time For a Costa Rica Adventure
Costa Rica is fortunate to enjoy warm and tropical weather year round. In general, the summer (dry season) goes from December to April, and winter (green season) goes from May to November. Unless you absolutely love the rain, we recommend avoiding travel in September and October as these months typically receive heavy amounts of precipitation.
