ABOUT COSTA RICA

Costa Rica is located in the isthmus of Central America. It is bordered by Nicaragua to the North and Panama to the South. With a surface area of exactly 51,100 square kilometers (31,937 square miles), you could  fit about ten Costa Rica’s into the state of California. We have two seasons: a dry season from the end of November through April and a wet season from May through October. The average temperature is about 75 F (24 C).
