Things to See and Do
There’s a lot to see and even more to do in Costa Rica in January, and you’ll quite literally be spoilt for choice.
Make use of the hot weather and visit the beaches. Sunbath, and then cool off in the warm water. You can also try surfing, with great weather making this the best time for beginners. The Pacific coast is a favourite in January.
It’s hot, but it’s also dry, so head inland to see the superb rainforests and volcanoes. A huge percentage of Costa Rican land is protected, so strap on the hiking boots and walk the trails in search of wildlife and adventure. Hike the Arenal Volcano, or explore the rainforests of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve, amongst much more.
