Location and Climate

Location and Climate: Los Chiles, Costa Rica.

Los Chiles is the capital of a canton by the same name. Los Chiles features a bank, gas station, rental cabins, some basic restaurants, and the domestic Los Chiles Airport, making travel to San Jose or other areas of the country convenient. Los Chiles is bordered on two sides by rivers, the Rio Frio and the Rio San Juan.

Los Chiles has a dry climate that varies in temperature from 67 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit, though at times it feels warmer. The area has occasional rain showers, which  are welcomed by the locals and keep the vegetation lush and green. Locals beat the heat by engaging in river activities or visiting the shady Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge located just 14 miles away.
