We recently returned from our vacation in Costa Rica. We vacationed from August 31-September 7, and stayed at the Pacifico Resort in Playa del Coco. We were concerned about venturing to Costa Rica during the rainy season, and our fears were completely unfounded. The vegetation is so lush and green, and the jungles were alive with sounds. It did rain everyday, but it was a welcome rain....as it helped cool things off. It rained for about an hour or so in the late afternoons. It didn't impede any of our activities....normally we would get an early start to tour the beaches and take in some excursions. We had a wonderful time and if we were to return to Costa Rica, would do so around the same time of year.
