December is a popular month for tourists to visit Costa Rica, and we’ll tell you why!
Don’t forget that you can rent your car with Avis and enjoy your time as a couple, family or with friends!
The weather for this time of year is good: sunny days with the ‘Christmas wind’ as it’s known blowing in cooler air in the afternoon. It tells us that the green season is over!
If you want to stay near the city of San Jose and take day trips; we recommend visiting the National Museum of Archaeology, Museum of Gold and Jade Museum. In December, the capital is also the focus of cultural interest with the main event being the Festival of Lights or Festival de la Luz, which is a parade of floats, bands and street performers. Shopping centers and malls provide an attractive agenda for visitors too.
A sedan such as the Nissan Sentra, Versa, Tiida or XTrail is recommended for this part of the country.
For further afield, consider the San Carlos region where you can visit the Arenal Volcano, and on a clear day, admire its iconic crater.
If you like the beach, adventure and nature, the best places are the Manuel Antonio National Park, Dominical Beach and Tortuguero. Find the perfect combination of relaxation and activities in these locations.
Coffee lovers can also enjoy the entire process and treatment of the grain with the Coffee Tour.
From driving outside of San Jose, the recommended cars are:
- Nissan Pathfinder 4WD
- Nissan XTrail 4WD
- Nissan Qashqai
- Nissan Navara 2WD
