Costa Rica’s Climate

Costa Rica’s micro climates vary from the barren cold volcanic tundra to the exotic cloud forest, from the deep dense jungle of Talamanca to the tropical dry forests of Guanacaste, from quiet gold-hued beaches where the Baulas Tortoises build their nests to the winding Tortuguero Canals where the crocodile is king. Even so, Costa Rica’s overall climate can be best described as mild.

Even so, Costa Rica’s overall climate can be best described as mild.

Being located within the tropics, seasonal changes in Costa Rica are not as dramatic as they are in countries on other latitudes. There is a ‘dry” season (equivalent to summer and spring) during which temperatures hover pleasantly in the high 60s to low 70s (20 -23 degrees C), which goes from December to May, and a “wet” season from June to November during which mornings are usually sunny and showers might be expected in the afternoon.

On areas near the coasts, temperatures may be as much as ten degrees higher, where as at Chirripo Peak, the highest mountain in Costa Rica (3800 meters), temperatures may drop down to the freezing point. Tourists should bring light clothes: a jacket and a raincoat is all the protection you’ll need unless you plan to go hiking in the higher mountains.
