Current Weather in Costa Rica
In order to choose the best time of year to come to Costa Rica, you should look at the regional seasons outlined below, in addition to taking into consideration several
other factors such as weather and crowds.
Costa Rica does not really know all 4 seasons. During the summer months (mid December to April is known as summer in Costa Rica), temperatures are extremely hot and
the chance of rain is very unlikely. However, crowds during these months can get pretty fierce, especially over Christmas, New Year's and Easter Week. This is Costa
Rica's high season and therefore, hotel and car rental prices will be higher during this time of year than the rest of the year.
The Rainy Season
The rainy season technically starts in May and lasts until the end of November. However, during the months of May, June, July & August, temperatures are still hot and the heavy rains have yet to fall. Common weather at this time is sunny skies with late afternoon or early morning rain showers. The real rains truly begin in September and last until the end of November. The biggest advantage of traveling during these months are lower prices (this is the low season) and much fewer crowds.
As stated before, summer is during the months of December through May, with the peak being just at the beginning, during the Christmas holiday and through the end
of January. If you're planning to come during Christmas, book way ahead! And if you have any questions about availability, just contact us!
