Costa Rica local weather forecast report.
Costa Rica weather is tropical and has distinct wet and dry seasons. However, some regions are rainy all year and others are very dry and sunny for most of the year.
Temperatures vary primarily with elevation, not with season: On coasts like Puntarenas and Isla Venado, it is hot all year, while up in the mountain it can be cool at night any time of year. At the highest elevations(10 000-12 000ft), frost is common.

Generally speaking, the rainy season(or "green season") is from May to mid-November. Costa Ricans call this wet time of year their winter.
The dry season, considered summer by Costa Ricans, is from mid-November through April. In Guanacaste, the dry north western province, and in Puntarenas, the dry season lasts several weeks longer than in other places. Even in the rainy seasons, days often start sunny, with rain falling in the afternoon and evening.

On the Caribbean coast, especially south of Limón, you can count on rain year round, although this area gets less rain in September and October than the rest of the country.
In general, the best time of the year to vist weather wise is December and January, when everything is still green from rains, but the sky es clear.
