Hello! It depends on where you are moving. We moved to Costa Rica last December, and we are more toward the Pacific side than the Caribbean. Here, although it is tropical and near the equator, weather is all about elevation. I detest hot humid weather, so we live in the more mountainous area of Costa Rica. It is pleasant all year round, and sometimes actually gets cool enough in the evening to wear a sweater! Compare this to Alabama, where I lived for 10 years, where it was so hot and humid, I just wanted to die. So...it depends on where you live. Also, I have been told that dogs don't necessarily blow their coats seasonally here, but I haven't had experience with that yet.
I should add that when we visited a beach here a few months ago, it was hot as Hades! No beach living for me.
