Costa Rica's climate is divided into two seasons; a dry and wet season. The dry season is between December and April, bringing about warm and rainless weather. The wet season runs from May to late November, characterized by sunny mornings and wet, overcast afternoons.
Due to the high density of North American tourists in the dry season, it would be best to schedule in advance. The wet season muddies roads and floods rivers, urging adventurous travelers to get a hold of a sturdy 4WD vehicle. Although the wetter months have less sunshine, hotel rates are lower and discounts are widely available on other activities.
