For travelers looking to experience pura vida or the “pure life,” there is no better place than Costa Rica. Home to lush tropical rainforests, diverse wildlife, world-class surfing, and welcoming locals who strive to preserve the natural wonders of their country, Costa Rica has become one of the top environmental-friendly destinations in the world. The wet season, also known as the “green season,” occurs June through November, and is the best time to admire the beautiful vegetation and to spot wildlife. Many areas receive rainfall around the same time each day, so it is easy for travelers to plan activities around the weather so it does not interfere with their trip.
