Costa Rica's weather has two seasons, just as many tropical countries do. The dry season is from mid December to April and is known as Summer (verano). The other season sees more rain and is called Winter (invierno). It is also known by the accurate name 'green season'.

Temperatures are a result of altitude but overall, they are temperate. In San Jose, the capital, at 3,770 feet (1150 meters), the range goes from 67 degrees F (17 C) to 79 degrees F (26 C). The lowlands are warmer and the average is 86 degrees F (30 C) during the day. The beaches can also be humid.

The Central Region (San Jose) and highlands have a true dry season. Likewise, the wet season can really be wet. The typical pattern is sunny and hot in the morning and a shower in the afternoon. However, it can sometimes rain for days. The Pacific coastal and northen regions (Guanacaste, Puntarenas) follow this pattern. The southern Pacific coast can see rain year round although there is less during summer. The Caribbean coast is rainy most of the year also and it is drier during summer. Although the Caribbean carnival is held in October which is a kind of Indian Summer that occurs that month.
