Best Time to Visit Costa Rica
Costa Rica has a tropical climate and visitors should be prepared for some rain no matter when they visit, but the best time to travel is usually considered to be from December to April, when the weather is drier and normally bright. Aside from September and October which are the wettest months, there is really no bad time to travel, and if you choose to go in July or August you may have the added benefit of seeing turtles nesting in Tortuguero or the humpback whale migration.
