Having two main seasons like the rest of Mexico, the small town of Costa Rica is a charming place to visit on your Mexican escapade.

  • Rainy Season: The rainy season lasts from May to mid-October. With chances of hurricanes and facing some rather gloomy rainy days, the rainy season however can be one of the best seasons to visit Costa Rica, especially if you plan to visit during September to November; there are fewer showers and the entire landscape is covered in greenery.
  • Dry Season: Mid- October onwards till April end is the dry season. The best time to visit Costa Rica, the dry season is when you can explore the grand outdoors.
