All guest rooms have air-conditioning, you will probably find it unnecessary. San Jose, Costa Rica has been rated as having one of the world's best climates by National Geographic because we are in a large central valley a kilometer (3200 feet) above sea level. Adventure Inn guests enjoy a constant 22-26°C temperature (72-78°F) year-round.

Costa Rica has two seasons: the rainy season, which is from May until November, and the dry season, which is from December to April. In the rainy season, expect it to rain most days in the afternoon for a few hours, but rarely in the morning or at night. In the dry season it hardly rains at all. Some people prefer to travel to Costa Rica during the dry season, however the country is more green-looking in the rainy season and is therefore much more beautiful that time of year.
