The Hule lagoon is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful in the country and the wildlife refuge where one of the places of high tourist potential is located, both for its scenic beauty and for the abundance and biological diversity present in the forest. that surrounds it. The tourist who arrives for the first time at the viewpoint, when the sun shines, is stunned by so much beauty gathered in a sector still unknown to most Costa Ricans.
Its shallow shores have favored the development of large numbers of aquatic macrophytes and in its waters abound the guapotes. In the surroundings are common armadillos, the capuchin and the congos, the otters in certain nearby rivers and at least 170 species of birds (25% of the total identified in Costa Rica). The odd wild duck usually breaks the monotomy of silence in its fleeting flight and of sonorous fluttering. Other species representative of the area are butterflies and bats, of which 60 and 24 species have been identified, respectively. Given the congenital beauty of this unique volcanic landscape, today it constitutes a protected area called Bosque Alegre Wildlife National Wildlife Refuge.

WHEN TO GO TO COSTA RICA
Open to the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, it hosts 58 microclimates, although broadly speaking, there are two main climatic seasons.
The dry season runs from mid-December to the end of May. During this time there are sunny days and some more frequent occasional rains on the Caribbean coast than on the Pacific coast.
The rainy season extends from early August until well into November. The rainiest months are September and October. However, it is very difficult for the rains to ruin a trip on those dates, because only the most remote tracks are closed in those months.
June and July are months of transition between the two seasons, pleasant weather and in which occasional rain showers are recorded in the afternoon.
In short, Costa Rica is a destination to visit all year round.
HOW TO MOVE IN COSTA RICA.
Its small dimensions, just over 50,000 km, (the area is ten times smaller than that of the Iberian Peninsula) invite you to visit Costa Rica at your leisure in its entirety. The minimum distance between the Pacific coast and the Caribbean is just over 100 km. Some 430 km separate the border of Nicaragua, to the north, from Panama, to the south. But we must not forget that the Central American Andes cross the country from northwest to southeast and that some roads do not present a perfect state. Hiring a local flight is recommended if you are going to combine faraway destinations.
