It has been an ambition of mine to visit Costa Rica to photograph humming birds. What I would like to know is when is it the best time to visit? I know it gets busy with tourists some times of the year, well, are there any 'quiet' times? I do not like large groups of people, the weather would not be a major distraction so long as its not hurricane season. Would appreciate any advice.


I like what I like.

I certainly can't help, but probably like many saw the topic and thought, 'ah, let's see a part of the world not given much exposure'.
Can you edit the topic? I don't think so.
Anyway, hopefully some will throw there comments in.

Love Costa Rica. Hurricanes really are an oddity in region - very seldom has the region been hit. We usually go in July - its one of its "low" seasons. Winter from what I learned down there is the peak season - people getting out of the cold. The weather doesn't vary much... particularly in areas like San Jose. My favorite area is Tamerendo - though not suer that is the areas where your birds are. When planning your drives, just plan on extra time. Most main roads are quite good, side roads can be varied - and not one is in a hurry. Have a great time.... if you can't come back with pictures from CR, I am not sure anywhere will work for ya. Its a great place.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.
