Description of Seasons
It’s always summer in Costa Rica, no matter the season. Costa Rica is becoming a year-round destination with each season having its own special appeal. The temperature is fairly constant year round with the difference in seasons measured in rainfall rather than temperature variation.
December through April, with the majority of travelers to Costa Rica escaping the North American winter and snow. This is the dryest season for Costa Rica – the average rainfall is at its lowest, you can experience weeks or months with no rain, the beach-perfect weather is hot and migrant bird populations are highest.
May through August, extending often into November. Known as the “rainy” season, it’s the favorite time of year for experienced travelers to Costa Rica and those who live there.
A common misconception is that “rainy” means continuous downpours. That is just not the case. For visitors to Villa Mariposa and South Costa Rica, the Green Season is magical for its added lushness and active abundance of wildlife.
Typically, it is gloriously sunny most of the day with a short rain in the late afternoon, just in time for a siesta or nap. Then the skies clear, everything is refreshed and the sun shines again until the magnificent sunset.
Because plant growth is in overdrive during this time, there is more food for the monkeys and you will see more of them. There is a greater variety of blooming orchids as well, along with other stunning flowers that bloom only at this time.
The jungle is in its full splendor and walking through it is an invigorating primeval experience that makes you feel truly alive.
Starts in September and carries through October and November, and is more in line with perceptions of a rainy season. It is still comfortably warm but not as hot as the dry season.
Rains are prevalent for most afternoons and occasionally fall the entire day, ranging from light drizzle to heavy downpours. While Costa Rica does not get hurricanes, there are occasionally heavy rains left over from dissipated hurricanes off the Caribbean coast.
Further south, the Osa Peninsula can get so wet that travel becomes difficult – many of the lodges shut down in September and October.
This is a slower time of the year for building but a great time to connect with potential builders, as they are more readily available and are already making plans for new housing starts in the dry season.
