How does TravelLocal work?

Why should I use TravelLocal?


Costa Rica is at its driest from December to April on its Pacific coast, and during September and October on the Caribbean side, and these are the most popular times of year to visit. However, don't rule out travel in the rainy or 'green' season- most days just see a prolonged shower in the afternoon, and there are far fewer visitors. If you're coming for Costa Rica’s wildlife - which most people are - you're advised to avoid the heavy rainfall of September and October, or stick to the Caribbean side where it is drier. Bear in mind too that being a tropical country, you could see rain at any time of year in Costa Rica, even in the dry season.
