Weather In Costa Rica

Weather in Costa Rica is diverse. The country is located a little bit north of the equator and rises quickly from sea level to over 12,000 feet at its highest point on the summit of Mt. Chirripo. The entire country is about the size of West Virginia and yet despite its small size has all but the highest and lowest climate zones of the planet making it very unique in terms of weather. Being located close to the equator does bring with it a mostly tropical climate with the mean temperature being in the 80′s for the country on average.

Along the coast of Costa Rica you will find it to be hot and humid for a lot of the year. As you climb in altitude though you find that it cools off considerably even though you are close to the equator. At the 2,000 feet elevation it is just about perfect. Not too hot in the day and not too cold in the evening for most of the year. There are of course exceptions when a major cold front may come the arctic or antarctic. Generally speaking though the weather in Costa Rica is what most people would call ideal.
