Go Green in Costa Rica

This curated itinerary takes you to the parts of the country that are best to visit in Costa Rica's rainier months or "green season". You're right on time for the turtle nesting season in Tortuguero, and if dolphin and whale-watching are on your must-do list you're in luck, as Costa Rica has the longest humpback whale season in the world! You can expect to have some rain during your trip, however this may be only for an hour or so a day, with the most rain coming during the months of September and October. During these two months, head to the Caribbean Coast, which enjoys its driest and sunniest months during this time.
