Best time to visit Costa Rica

Costa Rica is extensively covered in rainforest, flanked by oceans and with a spine of mountains in the middle. For all these reasons Costa Rica gets quite a lot of rain. So is there a ‘best’ time to come here? Well, we would argue that you could come any time, but realistically, a lot of people prefer to be here when there is less chance of rain.
From December to about April/early May Costa Rica is generally drier than the rest of the year. You can come across rain at any time in this small country, it is just a question of the amount. For this reason May to November should not necessarily be discounted.
