Summer in Costa Rica

As tropical climates are known for diverse climates and alternating sun and rain, you may experience very different weather depending on where in Costa Rica you choose to visit. Reserve a car hire in Costa Rica and plan to explore the best summer locations.

Costa Rica car hire

Costa Rica has two major seasons: rainy and dry. The dry season is typically from January through April and the rainy season lasts from May through December. While this is true all along the Pacific side of the country, it is not entirely true for the Caribbean side.

On the Caribbean the rainy season begins in mid to late April and continues through December, with the wettest months typically being July and November. However, they enjoy dry spell during August and September, making these excellent months to visit Costa Rica's Caribbean coast. Check out places like Tortuguero, where you can see abundant wildlife including giant turtles, or beautiful and relaxing little beaches like Manzanillo a little further down on the coast.

Although you may take in some rains if you visit Costa Rica's pacific coast during the summer, this will make for some pleasant relief if you plan to be out in the hot sun at a popular resort spot such as Jaco beach. The temperature is typically the same during the rainy season, or no more than 10 degrees cooler, and you are sure to have plenty of bright sunny days or sunny mornings with showers in the afternoon only
