September and October are the BEST months to visit our Caribbean!

Posted by on August 22, 2013

Many think rainy season and immediately write off a destination. The rainy season or Green Season as we prefer to call it here is in fact one of the best times to visit. Not just for the lower hotel prices, fewer tourists, and lushness of our rainforests during this time of year, but also for the weather!

The weather you say? Yes, the weather… The beginning of the Green Season is always a good time to visit most of our country. These months of May – August are perfect,  most rain fall happens in the late afternoon and we have many sunny days throughout these months.

But then getting into September and October things can be a little more wet than you may have been looking for. Not to worry, September and October promise excellent weather all down our Caribbean coastline.


Costa Rica is a country of micro climates. When the rest of the country is getting rained on the hardest, the Caribbean coast is enjoying their dry season. Dry season on the Caribbean only lasts about 2 months, but in these 2 months you will experience excellent daily weather.


Whether you are visiting the sea turtles nesting in Tortuguero (and babies hatching!), or swimming the blue waters of Cahuita, crossing the border to Bocas del Toro island, Panama, or lounging the days away right in Puerto Viejo, our Caribbean coast offers an excellent chance to see another side of our diverse country.


The nice weather in September and October is not only on the Caribbean coastline, other areas on the Caribbean slope of our central mountain chain can also be on your list. In Sarapiqui at the La Selva Biological Station you have an excellent chance to explore our jungles and hike through some of the most beautiful countryside you will ever witness.


Never should anyone think there are good months or bad months to visit Costa Rica. Every month of the year in Costa Rica you can find nice weather, nature, adventure, and a sense of wellness. Contact us today for free planning in Costa Rica, Belize, & Panama.
