October or November?

October or November?

My husband and I are hoping to celebrate our fifth anniversary with one week at the FS. We are available to take this trip anytime in October or early November. When during this six week block would we have the best chance of good weather, in your expert opinion? Does rainy season cover that entire time? Will roads be closed? Would we be able to go to Monteverde and see Arenal? Thanks!

Hi Llana314 - we went the first two weeks of November in 2011 and the weather was fantastic. Not a drop of rain at all.

We also did the Monteverde trip and it was amazing ! PM me if you have any questions
