Follow these basic considerations, and get our family Costa Rica packing list:

  1. Costa Rica is a tropical country with diverse eco-systems (from mountains, cloud forest, rain forest, deserts to coastal climates). Depending on where you go, you will need to pack for the various elements; from swimsuits to rain jackets.
  2. Be prepared for frequent weather change throughout the day. Layers, layers, layers are key!!!
  3. Costa Rica has two seasons:
  • The dry season: From Dec. through May (less rain)
  • The rainy season: From May through November (more rain)
  1. The average daily temperatures range between 70 and 80 degrees during the day and can dip into the 60’s at night (depending on where you are). You will hit those 90 temps at the beach and those cooler temps in the mountains. In either case, you will not run into snow 🙂  and pay attention to my MUST HAVES, (in addition to your passport of course)!
