We live in a country that has many different zones or regions. We have the mountains and along with mountains come the valleys. There are oceans, the pacific ocean and the carribean ocean, and the broad plains. All these very different areas have different weather as well. The weather ranges from very very hot to chilly. So, where do you feel comfortable? I, personally, cannot take the heat very well. I turn red and sweat profusely, not a pretty site. So for me, finding Santa Maria de Dota was truly a Godsend! We are 1.5 to 2 hours from San Jose and we are a mile high. Our weather is warm at times and chilly at times but never too much of an extreme. I think just a little above 90 degreees is the hottest we have experienced here in the last 7 years and 55 degrees is about the coldest it has gotten. We don’t have heat or air conditioning in our house and we haven’t needed it. They call this a cloud forrest because we are really up in the clouds. Places like Orotina are the worst because they are the hottest and they have no ocean breeze to compensate for the heat.
I know, we are all so very different, some like it hot, some like it cold, some like it in the pot nine days old!!!!! Come check out Santa Maria or Los Santos in general, I think we have the best of the whole country right here. We have the warmth, coolness (and the coolness factor LOL), the vistas here are spectacular along with the amazing sunsets. Fabulous!
