Costa Rica - time of year?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are starting to toss around ideas for 2015 trips - I know it is early, but we like to put together a list of possibilities and then let the possibilities marinate around a bit before we choose - then see what we feel like doing, what works for our schedules based on time of year, etc. And, because we like to use miles for plane tickets whenever we can, we generally need to book our flights in advance. This all leads me to the question about the best time of year to visit Costa Rica :) We can pretty much travel any time other than the 4th quarter of the year due to work and family commitments.

I've been to CR once before - a couple years ago for a week in July. I liked it so much, I want to go back with my husband because I am sure he'd love it. He is outdoorsy and an avid nature photographer, so yes, I think CR is right up his alley :)

I know that summer is the green season - which is the time of year I was there before. It was lovely that time of year, very green and lush, and while we did have some rain, it was mostly clear. Maybe we just got lucky. We also didn't go off the beaten path at all on that trip - conference at a hotel in El Roble, a couple day trips, a side trip to Tamarindo, a day in SJ - so good roads everywhere we went, etc.

This trip I want to definitely visit the Arenal area (of course) and I am also thinking about the area around Puerto Jimenez and Golfo Dulce - I have heard that the rain forest there is incredible and very much worth a visit, but it is more remote so due to road conditions, visiting in the green season might be problematic.

What do you guys think?
