Costa Rica Travel GuideWhen to visit Costa Rica
With consistently warm temperatures, Costa Rica is a year-round destination. However, the country has two distinct seasons: a dry season from December through April, and a wet "green" season from May through November. The dry season is the most popular time to visit, but the green season can be an ideal time to see lush vegetation and take advantage of lower prices. The holidays from December 25 through January 2, as well as the middle of July (due to school vacations), are considered the busiest peak times.
