Are the Months of December through March really the Best Weather Months to Travel and Vacation Costa Rica?
The weather in Costa Rica is always a big dilemma for travelers. The months of December through March are considered the “dry” months which means that it rains less…and most of the time you will have the entire day sunny. But this is the time that the hotels and travel companies charge more. You can get significant discounts if you travel and vacation in Costa Rica in the months of May through November. And these times are very nice.
The NW Pacific beaches gets less rain and it is great to travel there in the months of May through November. This area of Costa Rica is arid and in the rainy season months you get sunny mornings and late afternoon showers.
I personally like to travel to Costa Rica May thorough November. There are less tourist and all the prices are better. I do my major outdoor activities in the morning when there is sunshine and if it rains in the afternoon, I just rest.
But if you are looking for sun all day long then plan your vacation December through March. However there are areas of Costa Rica like the Arenal Volcano where there is no dry or rainy season. Here it rains a lot. Get out early in the morning when the sun is shining and do your outdoor activities.
