The Central Valley covers the northwest part of the province, where the city of Cartago is located, which in turn is divided into two main regions, the Eastern Central Valley and the Western Central Valley.
In the Eastern Central Valley the weather is affected by the conditions of the Pacific and the Caribbean, with equatorial and trade winds, with cloudiness and light rains, with average temperatures ranging from 10 to 20 degrees.
While in the Western Central Valley the weather depends on the altitude, since in the low areas the climate is dry, in the middle areas it is temperate and in the high areas it is cold and rainy, with average temperatures from 16 and up to 26 degrees.
In both valleys, rain falls from April to November, with a slight decrease in June. From December to March is the dry season.

Costa Rica’s climate is mainly tropical (EFE)
Costa Rica is very close to the Tropic of Cancer, which places the Central American country in a tropical zone.
However, the tropical climate in Costa Rican lands is altered by different factors such as relief, that is, mountains, plains and plateaus; the isthmic condition; and the oceanic influence, such as winds or sea breezes, the temperature of sea currents and the general circulation of the atmosphere.
The IMN divides Costa Rica into two large climatic regions: the Pacific Regime and the Caribbean Regime.
The Caribbean Regime is characterized by having two rainy periods that go from May to August and from November to January. The rainiest month in this season is December, precipitation occurs more regularly in the mornings and evenings.
