Any sun in July in Papagayo?

We've found a good last-minute deal for the Papagayo area, but are concerned about the weather in July. We don't mind rain if there is also some sunshine the same day. If it is overcast all the time, it can feel gloomy. Does anyone know?

Almost every year, July shows it's nice side by surprising Costa Rica with what is known as "mini summer." During these few weeks, rains seem to stop entirely and the sun is out pretty much all the time. Of course, there is no guarantee but the last four years have certainly adhered to this little rule.

Even if this year were to be an exception, it generally does NOT rain all day. More likely than not, you will experience blue skies in the morning and a few rainshowers in the afternoon and early evening. On rare occasions, it might also rain all day...

Hey, you are in Costa RIca. It is tropical, there will be some rain. I am going with the attitude, we'll make the best of what we get. The people are wonderful, the scenary sublime, and the time away from home and work what more can be said. CHILL, PURA VIDA!
