Whether you're traveling with a partner or taking along all the kids, a Costa Rica family vacation package is an ideal way to enjoy the breathtaking vistas and luxurious hotels of this gorgeous country.
Thanks to the year-round tropical climate in Costa Rica, family travel packages are appropriate any time of the year. (The travel agent you work with through 2CostaRica.com can offer you some guidance to help you identify timeframes and activities that won't cause conflicts with the region's rainy season.)
Costa Rica's climate is in many ways typical of other countries near the equator. The average annual temperature is between 71 and 81 degrees Fahrenheit; San Jose, the nation's capital, has an average temperature of 69 degrees. Microclimates in parts of the country can vary widely, due to changes in elevation, with temperatures becoming much cooler high in the mountains and warmer along the coasts.
The overall climate of Costa Rica is split into two main seasons: the dry season and the rainy season. Dry season lasts from December to April, while the rainy season generally falls between May and November. During this wet season, rain comes mostly in quick showers, with clear skies before and after; hotels have lower rates from May until November.
