Guanacaste during rainy season

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.

Thank you for your first hand experiences. Rainy season sounds awful (maybe that is why it is also nicknamed "green" season) yet fact is that only seldom there will be all day rain. Mostly it rains in the afternoon (around 3-4 pm) and then during the night. Get up early (some howlers might help you) is exactly the right thing to do. Not only the nature, also the prices are better in "green" season.

Thanks for re-enforcing what we have said so many times!

So glad you had such a good visit to Playas del Coco. The Pacifico is very nice.

See you next time!
