Nevertheless, you must not underestimate the distances, and sometimes because of traffic, poor roads, and other uncertainties, it takes quite long to get on the road from A to B. That is why it makes sense to fly from one place to another. Especially since the national tickets have an attractive price, and are carried out by small planes.

In Costa Rica there are only 2 seasons: summer and winter

Basically, our winter months are known as summer, which characterize of less or not at all raining. But there is no guarantee it will be dry in such a water-rich country as Costa Rica. When there is summer time in Europe, in Costa Rica they call it winter.

In the rainy season it rains. Yes, sometimes longer. But surely not as depressing as it happens in Europe. The rain is warm and most of the mornings dry. The rivers have plenty of water then, everything is fresh and green, and the air smells of life.
