Depending on where you choose to visit in Costa Rica you will experience very different weather during the summer months. Costa Rica has two major seasons: rainy and dry season. The dry season is typically from January through April and the rainy season lasts from May through December. While this is typically true all along the Pacific side of the country, it is not entirely true for the Caribbean side. Reserve a car hire in Costa Rica and plan to explore the best summer locations.
In 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 experience a marked dry spell during August and September, making these excellent months to plan to visit Costa Rica's Caribbean coast. Plan your summer vacation to 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 may actually make for some pleasant relief if you plan to be surfing in the hot sun at hot 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.
