Costa Rica’s “green season” is regarded by locals as one of the best times to visit Costa Rica. The “high” or “dry” season runs from December through late April and the green season lasts the rest of the year. There is a common misconception that the green season means you will get rained on night and day. Generally, it rains at night and the days are sunny and beautiful. The climate is cooler this time of year and the rain brings the jungle to life so it is the perfect time to get out and explore Santa Teresa and Mal Pais.
One of the main benefits of traveling to Costa Rica during the green season is that airfare and lodging are significantly cheaper. Delta offers direct flights from LAX to San Jose. A recent search for June showed round trip economy flights for $456 and first class for $789. Direct flights from the East coast are being offered in the same price range.
Hotels and vacation rentals are offering huge discounts as well in the green season. Depending on your dates you can get up to 30-40% off regular high season rates. Casa Sonrisas in Santa Teresa, a 3-bedroom vacation home steps away from the beach with a private pool, is offering a 30% discount off their high season rates. Other homes and hotels in the Santa Teresa area are offering similar discounts.
The green season is an ideal time to come visit the beaches of Santa Teresa, Mal Pais, and Playa Hermosa. You’ll find beautiful weather, secluded beaches, great surf, and discounts on airfare and lodging.
