What you need to know before flying to Costa Rica

in a nutshell

reserved, protected and pristine

If you’re searching for a deeply therapeutic destination, then Costa Rica might just hit the spot. Beware; you may feel like you’ve slipped into a utopian dream, a place where natural beauty meets pioneering social standards. As one of the most biologically diverse places on earth, Costa Rica’s lush landscapes and tropical jungles are teeming with exotic wildlife. Palm-fringed sandy beaches line both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts. Be sure to visit Manuel Antonio National Park for a heavy dose of marine and jungle flora and fauna.

The art of living

Costa Rica is the land of ‘pura vida’ (the pure life). Studies continue to rank Costa Rica as one of the best places to live. People there enjoy longer and healthier lives. Why? It may be a combination of things, such as a commitment to anti-stress lifestyles, a love of good food and a respect for nature. Ecotourism blossomed here before it became popular worldwide. Visit Costa Rica to discover the community-based and ecologically-sound projects that underpin the fabric of its rural society.

When to go

With only two distinct seasons, Costa Rica has a tropical climate year-round. The dry, summer season spans from December to April, coinciding with winter in Europe and America and making it prime travel time. January is often said to be the ideal month to visit as it’s just after the Christmas rush when the weather is still ideal. It’s also the best month for spotting whales and dolphins. Prices will be at their highest during the summer, but prices and crowds start dropping after Easter.

May to November is the rainy season, Costa Rica’s winter and hurricane season in the Atlantic. More remote areas may become difficult to access in September and October due to rainfall. Nevertheless, this season can still be a good time to visit; prices will be lower, and resorts will be quieter.

Off-peak tourist seasons can be a great time to travel to Costa Rica, including November when the rains have just finished, or April and May, when the rainy season has only just begun. At these times, finding bargain Costa Rica flights on Netflights will be a breeze.
