of all national parks and regions









The North Pacific Region including the Nicoya Peninsula is Costa Rica's hottest and driest zone. The rainy season starts later and ends earlier here, and overall it's more dependably sunny in this region than in other parts of the country. Many beautiful beaches are located here as well as huge cattle ranches. The Palo Verde, Santa Rosa and Rincon de la Vieja National Parks protect large areas of tropical dry forests where trees drop their leaves during the dry season and start flowering. The rainy months are from May through October, even though there is a small period when the rain ceases; this is called "Veranillo de San Juan- The dry season comes between December and March. The rainfall increases from 1.400 mm to 2.500 mm in the mountains in the beginning and the end of the year. The wind direction is from east and northeast during the dry season. June, September and October are the most humid and rainy months.
