This is Costa Rica's famed 'dry season', when beaches, cities, rainforests and all the great outdoors of the country come alive; it is a time of packed hotels and busy operators. Booking well in advance is imperative if you wish to be part of the fiesta. Christmas, New Year and Easter are when things go into overdrive. Surfers rejoice too, as the wave conditions are ideal.
Shoulder months, just after peak season and before torrential downpours, when unexpected thunderstorms and showers will come and go quickly. Still a time of tourists and crowds, but less so; roads may get a little muddy and the rainforests start to perk up at the welcome rains. Great time for whale-watching; for those seeking beach-time, the northern Pacific coast is still dry and perfect (a great time for surfers too).
Torrential rainfall makes Costa Rica a very wet and not-so-enjoyable destination. All activities will cease, and although the rainforests come alive, most trails are just mud and all roads out of the main cities are virtually impassable. Rock bottom accommodation prices, certainly, but nothing to really see, so best to avoid these months.
