When is the best time of the year to visit Costa Rica?
The peak tourist season in Costa Rica is between December to April when the country is brought to life by sunshine. This makes it the perfect time to sunbathe on beaches and discover the depths of the rainforests. However, this season is the most expensive to visit, as attractions up their prices and streets are busy. Between May and November the rainy season hits and the Costa Rica has sunny mornings with heavy rain in the afternoons typically.
Although the peak season of sunshine is popular with tourists, we recommend visiting in the green/rainy seasons. Costa Rica experts often describe this as the best time to visit. This is when lush sunny mornings are bought to life by active wildlife in the rainforests, streets are less crowded and shop prices have lowered. The coasts are generally warmer whereas the highlands are cooler, depending on your travel plans and group pick a location and season perfect for you.
