Snow

No matter how high you live in the mountains of Costa Rica, you won’t ever see any snow at all. You will have no need for snow tires, snow shoveling, keeping sand and salt shovels as well as hot drinks on hand. You won’t have any need for back up plans and escape routes for moving into cold weather.

We have NO snow in Costa Rica.

Reduce the cold and get cozy

December and January are the coldest months every year. That’s because of the winds. Some areas of Costa Rica the temperatures get to be as low as 50ºF or 10ºC. You will see locals using gloves, boots and snow caps.

Those are the days you’d want to live in a home with a fireplace that reduces the cold and gets you in a cozy mood.

If you adore cool climate and would like your agent to show you a home with fireplace, let us know.

We can assist you in figuring out what areas will suit you best, depending on your lifestyle.
