Best time of year to visit Pacific coast/Uvita?

What's the best time of year to visit the Costa Rica pacfic coast, in particular around the Uvita area?

I've seen a number of contradictory views. I was thinking of visiting in late November/early December.

That is the tail end of the "green season" or rainy season. Personaly I prefer this time of year because its more green and lush, more wildlife spoting, nearly deserted beaches, cheaper accomodations & rent a cars. Some rain in the afternoon or late evening with possibility of spectacular electric storms.

The snorkeling might be so so in the Marine Park but there are many other atractions and tours you can do. The dry season is from end of December / early January to May or early June. This year has rained a lot less than usual. List of things to do in the Uvita area: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g635755-s4/Uvita:Cost…

That is a great time. I have visited in every season. I have to say that they all offer something unique due to the climate changes.

How's the weather where you're sitting? If its perfect, I'd probably pick a different date. If you don't much care for your current weather, head on down!! Other than sept/October it's all good. I'm from Texas and only a Texan would go to the tropics in August to escape the heat! Droughts suck. Problem solved!
