Portions of the United States will see a total solar eclipse this upcoming spring on April 8, 2024. Costa Rica, which is south of the narrow band that offers totality, will get a partial eclipse of just over 12% of the moon covering the sun. This partial eclipse will peak at 12:24 PM.

Every 18 months or so—somewhere in the world—a total solar eclipse takes place.
The total phase of the eclipse, where the Moon completely covers the Sun, is visible from along a narrow path of totality. Typically, this path across the globe is around 15,000 km (9000 miles) long, but only about 150 km (90 miles) wide.

When will Costa Rica get a total solar eclipse? Set a calendar reminder, as it’s not for a while. On November 14, 2031, Costa Rica is in the narrow band allowing for a total solar eclipse to occur.

Even though the April 8 event will be minor in Costa Rica we still plan on setting a reminder to take a look at 12:24 PM. If you end up watching the eclipse make sure you wear appropriate solar eclipse glasses!
