One of the most fascinating things about Costa Rica is its biodiversity. Despite being a small country, it is one of the 25 most diverse countries in the world. For this reason, one of our main recommendations is that you do a circuit throughout the country and the ideal time to do it is at the beginning of the year.
The climate is ideal for touring the entire Pacific coast and the central valley areas, even in the South Pacific, since it will be free of rain. An unmissable place is the Osa Peninsula.
You may find some rain in the Caribbean areas, but they are predictable, so you can plan your days with peace of mind. We recommend you visit Puerto Viejo, Manzanillo, and the Cahuita National Park. And if you like surfing, you cannot miss a beach called Salsa Brava.
