Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a long, narrow country that spans the Central American isthmus. Like even narrower Panama to its south and broader Nicaragua to its north, it borders both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. At 19,650 square miles, it is slightly smaller than West Virginia. There are two distinct seasons, the dry season starts in the middle of November through the beginning of April. Rainy season brings sunny mornings and afternoon showers from mid May and lasts into October. An Indian summer comes along usually during the end of the month of June/beggining of July. Feel the warm hospitality of their people and try the famous Costarican coffee!
