when to travel?
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.
Anyway- come and travel to Costa Rica
It means theoretically that it rains 1 time daily, and it is usually in the afternoon, around 15:00.
Of course, you cannot set a time for the rain, but it is like this most of the time. It is anyway a great time to travel, everything is green, the rivers and waterfalls have enough water, and the country lives. Therefore, it is advisable to always get up very early, at 5:30 the sun it's already shinning. Then you will have the day to enjoy.
