April is a glorious time of the year to be in Costa Rica, and there’s so much to see and to do during this month.
Wildlife lovers will be in for a treat, because this is when turtles start to arrive and to nest on the beaches. You can find them along much of the Pacific coast, or head to Tortuguero National Park on the Caribbean coast for a higher chance of guaranteed sightings.
Wildlife lovers will also want to head into the rainforest, to national parks such as Corcovado or the Monteverde Cloud Forest. With the dry weather, the animals are much easier to spot in the wilderness, as they are forced to congregate around dwindling waterholes.
The Pacific coast is perfect for surfing in April, while you can also just kick back and book into a high-end resort, where you can enjoy the sun, sea and sand. As it’s the end of the dry season, the water couldn’t be clearer, and this is the best time of the year to go snorkelling or diving on either of Costa Rica’s coastlines.
