Costa Rica tops the list of destinations offering a quiet, steady, stable political, economic, and social environment in addition to providing a low cost of living, slow pace of life, warm weather, and great natural beauty.

Typically, although this year there has been a drastic shift from the normal rainy season, the mornings generally start of sunny and bright with the clouds rolling in during the early afternoon.

So you can even experience a bit of one and then the other by simply “trading” Pacific for Caribbean time here.
