Costa Rica has some of the most amazing, diverse and beautiful rainforests in the world. With one of the richest areas of biodiversity on the planet, the ecological zones vary from dry tropics to jungles and white sandy beaches to a volcanic ring of fire, all in one small country
Thanks to its unique geography and rich diversity of flora and fauna, Costa Rica is the home to over 200 mammal species and about 850 species of birds. Other tropical animals include monkeys, sloths, frogs, toucans and jaguars. National parks and animal refuges are the best places to spot wildlife – a walk with a local guide is recommended for an unforgettable experience
Best time to visit?
Anytime is a good time!
The most popular time for visitors is between January and the end of March so this can result in availability issues. If you can avoid travelling to Costa Rica in September and October you will miss the heaviest rain-always a bonus!
Travelling in April and May, November and early December are wonderful times to travel-avoiding the ‘snowbirds’ travelling down from North America. July and August is also a great time to visit because they have the mass arrival of turtles to lay their eggs in Tortuguero.
Christmas and Easter holidays are always extremely busy and early booking is essential.
