Depends where in the country you are
by: Marianne

You are correct - but only for some parts of the country.

C.R. is so near the equator that temps are similar from winter through summer. On the coast in Guanacoste Province it is hot and dry. On the Atlantic coast is hot and humid. There is a rainy season as well but not in Feb and Mar when we were there.

Where we were, about halfway between the coasts, on Lake Arenal, there was literally always a breeze (some wind and on the days it rained, the sky generally cleared by noon) which made it not only bearable but quite pleasant.

The homes in that area are built without heaters or a/c because they require neither. Everyone leaves doors and windows open and there were very few biting insects.
