Best Travel Seasons for Costa Rica

by Dillon Patterson Article Publisher

Wherever you go, it's possible to have a great time year round but people opt for different times for a variety of reasons. With Costa Rica Vacation, it chiefly depends on what activities you are planning to engage in while you are there when planning your Costa Rica vacation packages. This means that if it is a certain part of wildlife that you are chasing then you need to find when the most active months are so that you will be able to get the best chance of a decent viewing.

When you are considering when to travel to Costa Rica, you will want to consider the weather, what you want to do, crowds and pricing. With regard to the climate, there is no actual dry season in Costa Rica in the sense that, in most places, it simply rains less during the summer months from December through April. The rainy season begins in May and can continue through November. That said, this doesn't mean that this part of the year is one to avoid.

If you want to go surfing on the Pacific Coast, for example, the rainy season is the better time to go. On the Caribbean side of the country, however, it is the drier season in which one can experience better waves. White water rafting is also better during the rainy season although at its peak, it can get really wild. Beginners may want to stick to the beginning of the season for this reason.

If you have your heart set on seeing baby turtles hatching, it will depend on the particular species that interests you as to the best time for travelling. Green turtles, for example, have their peak nesting time between June and October, with August and September being particularly good for catching them. Most animals tend to have certain times during the year that are better for seeing them but it's possible to see some at any point in the year - monkeys are a good example.

Also, if you are a twitcher then you can come at any time of the year to do some bird watching - of course, certain times are better for certain types. If you are coming to Costa Rica for birding, however, you will want to make spotting the resplendent quetzal a priority. This species is easiest to catch sight of between November and May.

Pricing may be a consideration of when to travel as well. During the rainy season, you may be able to get better deals here. Thanks to the European and American holiday seasons you are likely to find that June and July are the exceptions and prices will be high because of this. For this reason, to get better prices, you may want to stick to the beginning or end of the rainy season when you will also not be as likely to have to contend with flooded roads.

During Christmas and Easter, there may be more crowds also because many people take South America travel tours at this time. And, during the Costa Rican school holidays from December to February, beaches can see an influx of people.

If you're planning on a relaxing vacation of a lifetime, look no further than Costa Rica - a true gem of a country. Take a look at this range of Costa Rica vacation tours for some inspiration and try getting in touch with this renowned provider of Latin America vacations.
