Summer is the ideal time to visit countries with many mountains, such as Whistler, Canada, or Iceland, which has a harsh winter season. Roads and trails will be available, allowing you to experience what these places have to offer fully.

1. Costa Rica

Costa Rica is an excellent choice for a summer vacation. However, the weather is pleasant all year. Costa Rica is an incredible destination for travelers, with soaring mountains and the gorgeous cloud forests of Monteverde. It is also regarded as an eco-tourism pioneer. Whether you want to go on adventurous nocturnal nature walks, look for sloths and spider monkeys, or relax on the gorgeous beaches of Tamarindo, Costa Rica is one of the most fabulous destinations to visit in the summer.

Although summer is also the 'rainy season' in Costa Rica, it usually only showers for a few hours in the late afternoon. For a good reason, this is known as the "green season." The beautiful rainforests and countryside come to life at this time of year. Exotic flowers bloom and the local animals become more active. You can experience the best of Costa Rica at this time of year, so it's worth surviving a few hours of rain.

Summer weather allows you to spend more time visiting the islands and the Indian Ocean seas because it is pleasant and dry. Because reefs surround the islands, it's lovely to spend time in the water to observe some fantastic reefs and aquatic life.
