Climate is located between 8 and 12 degrees north of the Equator, the climate is tropical year round. Costa Rica's seasons are defined by how much rain falls during a particular period. The year can be split into two periods, the dry season known to the residents as summer, and the rainy season, known locally as winter. The "summer" or dry season goes from December to April, and "winter" or rainy season goes from May to November, which almost coincides with the Atlantic hurricane season, and during this time, it rains constantly in some regions.

Flora and Fauna in Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. While the country has only about 0.1% of the world's landmass, it contains 5% of the world's biodiversity. Around 25% of the country's land area is in protected national parks and protected areas, the largest percentage of protected areas in the world. Costa Rica has successfully managed to diminish deforestation from some of the worst rates in the world from 1973 to 1989, to almost zero by 2005.

Costa Rica Tips Travel

Documents & Security Tips:

-Passport - Bring a photocopy so original can be left in hotel safe with other important documents a belongings.

-Tickets - write down all the flight information and the ticket number and keep separately from the original tickets.

- Change money only in safe places like a: banks or at your hotel. Costa Rica offers ATMs in San José but regularly not in rural areas.

- Do not carry amount of cash or valuable belongings when you`re walking in the city.

- If you rent a car, never leave valuables in the car.

-  Personal medications include all your medications that you need during your travel to avoid any inconvenient with you during your stay in Costa Rica.

Baggage

If at all possible, try to bring into one carry-on and one checked bag.  The carry-on will include essential items such as medications, all your money, passport and tickets, binoculars and camera, bathroom kit and one change of clothes. By taking these precautions, it won’t be such a major difficulty if your clothing or checked bag is delayed. You have to consider our domestic flights luggage restriction or if you decide to go to Tortuguero National Park or take an overnight in our Pacuare River, the boat has luggage restriction. The restriction baggage is 25 pounds weight limit per person.

Clothing

In general lightweight, fast-drying clothing is preferable.  Many people choose all cotton but cotton/synthetic blends are also cool to wear and don’t wrinkle as much.  Because temperatures can change drastically over the course of a day (if you go from the lowlands to the highlands), come prepared to dress for these areas) and don`t forget your sweater because you will use some times.

Generally, Costa Ricans dress very casually, even in San José, although somewhat dressier attire is the norm for performances at the National Theater, for example, or at first class restaurants. While it used to be inappropriate to wear shorts downtown, it is now a very common practice - particularly among young men and women. Ladies, if you do decide to wear your shorts be prepared for a Latin reaction. Whether in San Jose or at a remote lodge, clean, dry clothes for evening are a must for your own comfort.
