Costa Rica is beautiful - there's no debating it. But take a minute to close your eyes and you'll find that this country is more than just a perfect postcard.
Listen and hear the screech of the howler monkey overhead as they dine on a feast of foliage and fruit, the deafening roar of waterfalls carved into the mountainsides, the soft crunch of leaves on the rainforest floor. Taste new flavours in a simple home-style Caribbean dish of rice and beans and take a deep breath and smell the fragrant air after an afternoon downpour. Run your fingers through the fine white sand or get your palms dirty with a handful of moist black soil.
Then open your eyes to the colour of the place.
Best time to go
Costa Rica has only two seasons of weather - dry and wet. Most visitors come to Costa Rica during the dry season from November to April for a winter get away, but for lush, green scenery and much lower prices, visit during the wet season.
