Things to See and Do
October is the best time to be exploring the Caribbean coastline. It’s low season, prices will be cheap and there won’t be many other tourists around. Plus, the weather is great.
Avoid the interior and the Pacific; it’s really not worth risking being rained in during October, because the chances are high that this will happen.
Instead, head to the north of the Caribbean Coast where you’ll catch the end of the turtle nesting season at Tortuguero National Park.
From there you can head south, taking in beaches at Puerto Viejo de la Talamanca and Limon, before continuing to Cahuita National Park.
This isn’t a bad time to snorkel and swim either, because the waters of the Caribbean are not only warm but are relatively calm and tranquil too.
