With its long coasts of Caribbean and Pacific beaches as well as mountainous highlands, thick rain forests, and abundant valleys there are many different climates to choose from.
To change your weather in Costa Rica you must change your altitude, which in turn will change the amount of rain fall. Go to the highland city of Monteverde for example and you’ll be surrounded by a cool mist and fog for most of the year. The Pacific coast around Guanacaste, on the other hand is hot and dry, perfect for the many world-class beaches.
Costa Rica itself has an average temperature of 70 to 81 F (21 to 27 C). Due to its proximity to the equator, it has no real summer or winter. It does however have a rainy season from May to November. Average rainfall in Costa Rica is around 100 inches a year, but some areas in Costa Rica’s mountains can get 25 feet of rainfall annually.
The Caribbean coast has its own microclimate thanks to continual trade winds that keep the climate hot and moist, with rain year around.
