When to go

As far as climate goes, the late-December to mid-April dry season is the most pleasant.

But of course, this is when everyone else goes to Costa Rica, so prices are up and hotels are full. Although some roads are impassable in the wet season, it’s still worthwhile to visit at this time, and things are much quieter.

April, May and mid-October to mid-December should give you the best of both worlds.
