Note - Costa Rica's weather is very diverse. In our location, the rainy season typically starts in mid-May and runs through November. There is usually an 'Indian Summer' in June and July, with a break in the steady rain. December to May are usually hot and humid with little or no rain. Rainy or not, the temperatures will usually be at least in the 70's, with temps well into the 90's during the dry season.
