Season Details

Almost all Costa Rica hotels and vacation rentals run with 4 seasons: low, high, peak and Tico School July vacation, with significantly different prices.

Tico school year runs January to November with a 2 week vacation July 1st to 15th.

The peak season is Christmas week, New Year’s week and the Holy week aka Easter week, where occupancy is usually close to 100%, so it is convenient to book in advance so you know your budget and you get a place you want. Beaches are nice to visit even late at night, but you can’t put a tent up and stay overnight.

Low season is usually the months of May, June, September, October and 1st half of November.

The high season is the rest of the year, specifically: 2nd half of July, August, 2nd half of November, 1st half of December, the rest of January, as well as February, March and April other than whenever Holy/Easter week falls that year.

Years ago July and August were not part of the high season, but the increase in tourism from Australia travelling in their winter and Europe traveling in the summer of the northern hemisphere has caused the high season to now include July and August, and the 1st 2 weeks overlap with the Tico summer school break.

Extra Charges

– There is a 13% sales tax on all rentals in Costa Rica. We are aware that some of our competitors do not charge it in order to keep their prices to you lower. Whether they are charging more than we do or less, we caution you to be careful renting in locations that don’t charge the 13% tax. In 2019 the Costa Rica government started cracking down on these tax evaders and you may find that you have no place to stay when you arrive – because the government shut them down for non-compliance. All legal rentals in Costa Rica charge this tax. But note: If they tell you the 13% is included in the rate, then this is not a concern – it is permitted in Costa Rica to provide the prices either way, it just isn’t permitted to tell you they aren’t charging the 13% tax because of “whatever excuse they give you.”

– There is room to park 2 cars or SUV’s and 2 motorcycles at a unit (no extra charge, included in your rent). If you want to park more, it is $5/night for one extra, $15/night for two extra, $30/night for 3 extra.

– You are given a reasonable electrical allowance, but if you leave the air conditioners running all day and night and or consume a very high amount for other purposes you may use more than your electrical allowance and be billed for the extra. (We have only ever had to bill 2 people extra, and they knew before hand and told us they were going to.)

– Tours: we are getting connections with tour companies that allow you to book specific tours at the lowest possible rate. If you want to book those through us, let us know. Over 2020 we will be adding a lot more tours to our list. Some have minimum numbers for a private tour. There are lots of places with a base location that you can get tours. Warning: But never buy a tour from someone that has no physical building as their location – they take a deposit on a discount tour, promise to meet you ‘here’ tomorrow, then never show up – one of the few, but common, scams in Costa Rica.
