Costa Rica is located in the middle of Central America and borders both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Temperatures are generally higher on the Pacific side than on the Caribbean at the same elevation (there are more clouds on the Caribbean side year-round than on the Pacific). At sea level on either side, the annual average temperature is always above 75°F.
