May is a great time to be on the northern Guanacaste coast. Most of the rain is in late afternoon or evening and it's a slow time so not a lot of crowds anywhere. Lots of flowers blooming everywhere.

Not a lot of rain, most likely afternoon showers.

As for temperature, a lot cooler.

Consider a day trip to Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, active, fun to explore, lots of watefalls, hot springs, the closest volcano to the beach, no more than 60 km.

There was very little rain last year in May. The first rain was earlier than the year before, in April, but then it dried up again and was a super dry year. I wonder if this year will be a little wetter? I hope so! I love the afternoon rain showers.....rainbows, beautiful thunder and lightning storms and amazing sunsets!

My favorite time of year!
