Costa Rica doesn’t get Atlantic hurricanes. These track maps for the past four years show that the storms don’t come close. And you can see why. We’re protected by the eastern bulges of Nicaragua and Venezuela. And this part of the Pacific doesn’t get hurricanes either. Here’s a link to NOAA’s site. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/pastall.shtml#tracks_all
We do sometimes get some heavy rains from the edges of Carribean/Atlantic storms but, gratefully, we are spared the big damage.
