February is the best time to enjoy the outdoors and the multitude of outdoor pursuits available in Costa Rica. With so much nature to explore, it’s easy to make the most of the beautiful weather.
This is one of the most popular times of the year for surfing, especially on the Pacific coast, because the waves and the surf are so consistent. Head to Tamarindo or Jaco, both of which overlook the Pacific Ocean and offer plenty of surfing opportunities.
Explore the rest of the Nicoya Peninsula too, where you’ll not only find rainforests and reserves but you’ll able to delve into the indigenous Guanacaste culture.
Inland, you can escape the heat of the coast by travelling into the highlands. Costa Rica is home to a string of volcanoes, many of which are incredibly active. This is a great time to tackle the peaks, as at higher altitude they are much cooler than the lowlands.
As well as this, you can go wildlife spotting in the national parks, relax and unwind on the beaches, or explore the culture and history behind San Jose, the capital.
