Voyages Jules Verne

Discover Costa Rica

A nature-lover’s paradise, Costa Rica, named the ‘rich coast’ by the early Spanish conquistadors, is one of the world’s most naturally splendid and biologically diverse countries, boasting an envious record of environmental care and a magnificent coastline on both the Pacific and Atlantic sides.

Our tours invite you to take a journey through this land of smouldering volcanoes, dramatic landscapes, highlands and lowlands, plantations, steamy rainforests and misty cloud forests. With over a quarter of the country legally protected, Costa Rica is a haven for wildlife, especially birdlife with over 850 species, and exotic vegetation and flora where there are over 2,000 species of orchid to delight visitors. Its literacy rate of around 95% and the disbandment of armed forces suggests a political enlightenment to complement its environmental credentials. It is extraordinary that when there is so much to see and do in this most beautiful of countries, that Costa Rica is so little known.

Weather

Weather & Climate

In the Central Valley, where the main centres of population are located, the average temperature is 22°C (72°F) and the region enjoys a spring-like climate year round. In the coastal areas, the temperature is much hotter and humid, while the Pacific Northwest can be extremely hot and dry.

When to go

The 'warm' dry season is December to May, though temperature differences between summer and winter are slight. March is the height of the dry season, and the humidity is lower at this time, making this a popular time for visitors.
