Where to go when - our guide to Pacific coast

Manuel Antonio

The weather in Pacific coast is wide and varied

In between the Nicoya and Osa Peninsulas is the central area of the Pacific coast, home to the Manuel Antonio National Park and the most accessible beaches from the interior of the country. Similar to the rest of the western coastline, temperatures here average 29-30°C throughout the year, but are best enjoyed during the dry season from December to April. Humpback whales can be spotted off the shore from August – November.
