We loved the friendly people. Everyone had time to offer advice and chat. A really amazing, varied country, from hot dry pacific beaches to damp cool cloudforests, everything was a pleasure. We felt so comfortable and at home, and always felt safe.

Wonderful things to do in Costa Rica

Costa Rica will make you smile whether you’re a nature-lover looking for wildlife and beautiful landscapes, a beach-lover wanting to escape, or an adrenalin-junkie who loves rafting, riding or zip-lining. Here are some of our favourite things to do in Costa Rica.

When to go to Costa Rica

The best time to go to Costa Rica for most visitors is when it is drier. Rain can fall in any month, but it’s less wet from December to May. Heaviest rains are mostly September and October. Good prices and fewer people are the reasons we still recommend travel to Costa Rica in June to August and November, as long as you don’t mind tropical downpours interrupting your sunshine!
