Secrets of Shoulder Season Travel

When anyone asks about our favorite time to travel, the answer almost always involves shoulder season. Along with smaller crowds and less expensive accommodations, shoulder season can be prime for wildlife viewing. Weather often dictates shoulder season and the transition between seasons, e.g. dry versus green season in Costa Rica, is just starting then.

Summer travel season will wind down in the next few weeks, but don’t store luggage just yet. Fall shoulder season at many destinations in our portfolio is just around the corner.
