Costa Rica: Weather
Due to its proximity to the Equator, Costa Rica enjoys a tropical climate year round. Seasons in Costa Rica are defined by rain and the dry season is considered summer while the wet season is considered winter. The dry season tends to run from December to April and the wet season is from May to November. This time of year is also around the Atlantic hurricane season and some parts of the country experience a great deal of rain. Other factors that affect Costa Rica’s climate include elevation and topography.
Costa Rica’s Central Valley hosts much of the population and enjoys a spring-like climate for much of the year with an average daily temperature of 22˚C (71˚F). Costa Rica’s two coasts experience hotter and more humid weather than the Central Valley while the Pacific Northwest can be very hot and dry.
