Are there mosquitoes in Costa Rica?

Since Costa Rica is a tropical climate, there are mosquitoes throughout the year. They are more prevalent from May to October in beach areas, but not typically found in high-altitude destinations such as Poás Volcano, Monteverde, and San Gerardo de Dota due to the cool night temperatures.

Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn. You can reduce your exposure by closing doors and windows without screens between 4PM and 8AM, using insect repellent, and wearing long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, a hat, socks, and shoes.
