As far as I know the weather should be good. We flew in late October, and we started off with 3 days of rain. It was 30 degrees though. Take your pack a macs.
I hope you will have a lovely time.

If you're talking about the excursions such as hikes, zip lining, etc. they will tell you it is safer. However it is a lot more expensive. I booked my excursions outside of the hotel. I found a small business called Guanacaste Traveler on Instagram and they were very professional($110). We had THE BEST time. In order to get picked up by an outside business however, they do ask you to write your passport number and name on a form for hotel security to keep. They do this so that they know who left the hotel and with whom.
My family and I also booked a snorkel and coco beach excursion with a small business. We found this one on the beach. There are a couple of people on the beach promoting their businesses and it does sound sketchy but we had zero problems and has a great time on our excursion ($35).
Book at your discretion. For my family, it was more convenient and we were safe.
