Geographic LocationThe location of Costa Rica is what makes it such a popular vacation destination. This Central American nation has a mix of boarders. To the north you will find the country of Nicaragua. To the southeast you find the nation of Panama. The boarders don’t stop there though. For those looking for a large body of water to relax by you have two choices. In the north you will find the Caribbean Sea. Heading south you will find the Northern Pacific Ocean. Now that we have the location established let’s look into another topic that may weigh on your mind, the weather. As with any location this variable can change on daily basis. Typically though most of the island sees its dry season arrive for the winter months. There is however some areas that will see the rainy season move in during this time of year. The temperatures can vary depending on which part of the country you are in, however they are certainly warmer than those found in most of the United States during the winter. These two factors lead to the winter months being the high season for Costa Rica’s tourism industry.
