Dense Costa Rican Rainforest

 

Costa Rica is famous for its dense rainforests. As the name implies, these forests can get a little damp, but you might be surprised by how much the weather and climate of Costa Rica’s rainforests can vary.

These magnificent jungles cover much of the country and are home to an amazing array of exotic plant and animal life.

Many different parts of Costa Rica have rainforests, but the climates of each forest can vary depending on where it is located. For example, the central Pacific region that encompasses Manuel Antonio, Jaco and Puntarenas is known for its high temperatures and humidity, however under the canopy of the rainforests in these areas temperatures are often much cooler than those found in the Northern Pacific Coast. The reason for these differences is largely due to variations in elevation, as higher altitudes in the mountains of the central Pacific are often accompanied by lower temperatures. In addition, the central Pacific region is where the true rainforests really start; the forest of the North are typically classified as tropical dry forests.

If you plan to visit Costa Rica’s rainforests during the dry season, wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, preferably made from a lightweight material such as linen. Temperatures can soar in the dry season, making the rainforests very hot and humid, so plan to dress accordingly. Conversely, if you’re coming to Costa Rica during the rainy season, bring a light, waterproof jacket and long pants, not so much for the temperatures as they stay the same as in the dry season; but early afternoon showers are very common and although they don’t last for long, rain could come as a surprise out of the blue skies.

Hope you enjoyed a small part of our visit to the rainforest.

    • YIKES … no I didn’t Gilly? Did you?
      The only insects I encountered were the ones on me. I had insect repellent that they seemed to like. HAHA That’s what I get for buying a chemical free insect repellent. I did have to do a great amount of walking but I made it. I have more photographs but foliage is foliage after you see a few. There were Capochin monkey’s which my hubby adored. It was a fun tour. Thanks for visiting. Hope your weekend is a peaceful one. Issy 😎
