Best time to go
Costa Rica experiences two distinct seasons- a wet season, which lasts from May to mid-November, and a dry season, which lasts from mid-November to April. In any given region, however, the weather is dictated not only by the season, but by elevation and proximity to the sea.

The cuisine, prepared by a local chef and her team, is plentiful, delicious and nutritious. They incorporate vegetables, lettuces, herbs and fruits from their gardens along with homemade breads and tortillas, jams and salsas, and fresh meats, eggs and other foods from Costa Rica. You can choose from a two- or three-meal plan. Each plan includes breakfast and, with the two-meal option, you can opt for lunch or dinner. Breakfast is often buffet style, while lunch and dinner are served at your table in the dining room overlooking the botanical gardens.
