Climate and Location

Climate and Location: Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica.

Puerto Jimenez is located on the Eastern Coast of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula in the South Pacific region near the Panama border. It is lined on one side with the Golfo Dulce, which is home to dolphins during mating season. The town lies on the edge of the world famous Corcovado National Park, and it is a popular place for those planning a trek. Nearby are the rugged surf beaches of Cabo Matapalo and Pavones and Drake Bay, famous worldwide for whale watching.

On the far South Pacific Coast, Puerto Jimenez is quite a journey from San Jose. Buses run regularly to Golfito and take around 8 hours, followed by a ferry to Puerto Jimenez which takes between thirty minutes and an hour and a half. The good news is that there are regular, fast, and inexpensive flights between San Jose and Puerto Jimenez.



Temperatures remain consistently warm year round in Puerto Jimenez, ranging from the high 80s to low 90s during the day and in the mid 70s in the evening. There is a distinct high and green season that coincides with the rest of the Pacific Coast. The high season has dryer months running from December through April, but rainfall is possible and the air is fairly humid year round. This keeps the jungle lush and green and the animals out and active.
