November is a transitional month and certainly the later in the month the better for a good chance at nice weather. We are generally down there the week after Thanksgiving, and have also been there earlier in the month. The weather is unpredictable, but you shouldn't get anything too bad. Some showers and some clearing. The temperatures are cooler, which make for some wonderful early coffee drinking mornings, and sunset watching evenings.

This year, we arrived on Nov 1...have yet to see a drop of rain on the Nicoya. Chances are you are pretty safe from the rains.

We live in the Brasilito area, we like it because it is much less touristy than other areas, but close enough to everything (shopping, nightlife, airport, national parks, etc) should we tire of beautiful Playa Conchal.

1) Rollover map for rainfall etc. by month and location: costa-rica-guide.com/Weather/WeatherMap.html

2) TA forums are organized as a heirarchical outline. You've inadvertently posted in the wrong-subforum. Doing that with a more location-specific question would cut into your chances for getting a good and timely answer. See the blue breadcrumbs under the search box at the top of the page.
