Costa Rica Climate “by the Numbers”

The website Weather and Climate does a thorough job of breaking down the seasonal quirks of Santa Teresa. Some of the most spectacular weather comes, surprisingly enough, in the middle of the rainy season. Truly, the Costa Rica seasons provide moisture for the beautiful backdrop of the lush greenery and forests surrounding the cities. It is a resource that locals, and visitors, find themselves grateful for all year round.

We can help our guests understand the Costa Rica climate by month to take the guesswork out of what to expect when booking your stay. Understanding the optimal weeks within each season is key to maximizing your travel days during the seasons and changeable Costa Rica climate.

May – October 

The months between May and October typically experience the most rain, which can cause some unpredictable situations: the rainfall can be temperamental, occurring in short durations or for many hours. While we find it absolutely enchanting, some tourists may not feel the same if their goal is adventuring outdoors for extended periods. That said, experiencing tropical rain can be a beautiful scene from a villa, providing a serene environment to relax and enjoy your time away.

Generally, the off seasons in Costa Rica are May, June, September, or October because of the heavy rains.

July-early August

There is a way to enjoy both the rain and the sun! There is a magical time during July and the first weeks of August, the sun breaks through, allowing for the best of both worlds. Lush jungles and tropical foliage enhanced by recent rains will reflect the richest of sage green and emerald tones. When you find yourself cloud watching, you’ll be enchanted by deep and dazzlingly blue skies. Visitors and locals alike love how stunning the flora and fauna of the Costa Rica climate is on display during these short weeks.

Depending on your itinerary, it can be a very laid back time to visit (that also secures less busy areas of the cities). If you are aiming for the most ideal Costa Rica climate by month, you can hit that sweet spot in July and August. It is an unbeatable time to immerse yourself into the country.

November – April

For those with a more flexible travel date plan, choosing to visit any time between November through April generally provides luxuriously temperate weather and lovely conditions along the pristine beaches. No matter when you book during those times, you will enjoy moderate temperatures and consistently clear skies.

Thankfully, chilly air is something this country does not know or experience. No matter which of the Costa Rica seasons you plan to visit Casa Teresa in, you don’t have to worry about catching a chill: the lowest average temperature in Santa Teresa is 69 degrees Fahrenheit (21℃) in May, and frequently reaches 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35℃) or higher in the warmer months. There’s a reason our beloved Santa Teresa beaches attract surfers from around the world! It is surely a getaway that feels like the most comfortable tropical and sunny vacation during this time.
