Trip to Costa Rica - Pura Vida
Costa Rica has little bit of everything for every kind of traveler. It is one of the most biologically diverse countries on earth with volcanos, remote beaches, rainforests, exotic wildlife, charming small towns, rivers, adventure activities, etc.
Costa Rica is our very first proper international vacation. We planned this trip months in advance and spent months researching about the currency, weather and other little things. When the time finally came, “Hurricane Otto” happened.

If you are interested, you can read about our trip in our blog below.

Which month did you visit Costa Rica? Is July okay to visit? Thanks in advance :)

We've been in July before. It's a good time to visit, but you would probably get some rain since that's the rainy season for a lot of the country.

We visited in the end of is the transition month from rainy to dry season. It did rain quite a bit.. but our schedule was messed up more my the hurricane.
Typically December - April is the dry season and busiest.. But our guide said it generally rains year round.. just less in dry season and more in the rainy season..
