We spent a month is Costa Rica traveling between four different locations, beach, rain forest, and cities. The wildlife was great, and we especially loved the howler monkey’s chattering in the early morning hours. Of course the sloths were fabulous!

Best Time to Visit Costa Rica:
Our recommendation for the best time to visit Costa Rica is during the dry season of December-April. We enjoyed both the cloud forests (bring a jacket because it is much cooler) and the beach areas of the Pacific side the most. Please note that Costa Rica weather can vary greatly based on altitude.
A memory we will always cherish is learning to make authentic corn tortillas from a local woman on the Nicoya peninsula of western Costa Rica. She was a very sweet person and had so much pride in sharing the craft she had perfected over a lifetime!
