MARCH, 2022

What is the best time to travel to Dominical, Costa Rica? The Dominical Costa Rica weather is pleasant the whole year round. The rainforest is close by, so it rains frequently. However, our experience is that most travelers don’t see the rain as a problem. On the contrary, it generally rains for a short period in the late afternoon or evening, which cools things down a bit for the night. The temperatures are always nice and warm; year round. With highs usually around 31 degrees Celsius (88 degrees Fahrenheit) and lows around 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit). Also the ocean remains nicely warm the whole year.

The period from mid-December until April is considered dry season. The days are very sunny and sunsets are stunning. However, nights are generally warmer due to the absence of the late afternoon showers. The other months are considered Green Season, because the rain makes the nature lush. The rainforest and waterfalls are most beautiful in Green Season. The months September and October are the wettest. Days are more cloudy, but the mornings are in general very sunny. In October it is possible to have a few days dark and wet in a way that some people would find it unpleasant.
