Due to its location past the Caribbean slope, Turrialba experiences an interesting climate. In the city, it is hot with temperatures in the high 80s F (31 C) in dry season (mid December to beginning of May). However, the Caribbean experiences a bit of a different weather pattern so it can rain more and longer during the typical tropical rainy season (May to beginning of May). This is why this area is so great for farming and agriculture.
But if you go up in the mountains near Guayabo, Santa Cruz and Turrialba Volcano National Park, the weather is much cooler and fresher with temperatures in the 70s F (24 C) since it is higher in elevation.
