Weather in Tambor in August?

We are thinking about traveling to Costa Rica with our kids (12 and 17) who want to explore and surf. I heard that August is the rainy season but they are telling me that it only rains after 3pm...is this true?

hot, sunny mornings and rainy in the afternoons.

tambor is a nice area but you can also explore and surf almost in the whole country

Tambor is somewhat isolated and a little difficult to get to, maybe split your time between Arenal/La fortuna and a beach area. Tamarindo, Dominical on the Pacific, Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side, though in August the surf is usually small.
