Do you have your heart set on Costa Rica, but those storm clouds make you a bit nervous? The Costa Rica rainy season is a common concern for travelers, but we recommend you to do not let the rain keep you away. The rainy or “green season” from Mid-August to November is actually a preferred travel time for many seasoned Costa Rica travelers. Let us inform you why?
First, let us reexamine this concept of rain. We can assure you that the vision you have of shivering in your bathing suit on the beach in a rainstorm is not an accurate representation of the rainy season in Costa Rica. Although, we cannot guarantee the weather, typically rainy season mornings are bright and sunny with afternoon showers that roll in for a couple of hours. So before you see the first rain drop, you have already been out on adventures and sun bathing at the pool at Casa Tranquila. Now would be the perfect time for a spa treatment, a well-deserved afternoon nap, or a quick bath before dinner.
Consider it to your benefit that the rainy season does not get all the masses that you must expect during the dry season. Fewer crowds mean emptier beaches, fewer people on your day tour, and more personalized service. Doesn´t that sound good?
You Don’t Have To Plan So Far Ahead
There is less urgency in the green season. If you want to do a last minute trip to Costa Rica, you can. In the rainy season, it is entirely possible to put a trip together a month in advance. No need to fixate on the details. A laid back, stress-free experience is what it’s all about after all.
The Best Pura Vida Experience
You can experience the Pura Vida way of life anytime, anywhere during your trip to Costa Rica. This no worries, go-with-the-flow kind of attitude is best understood when interacting with locals. Talk to your tour guide, the bus boy, whoever. The people of Costa Rica are friendly and eager to share their culture. And the best way to experience that is without all the hustle and bustle that the dry season can bring.
Naturally, less demand means better prices. Travel in the green season and you basically cover your entire travel and activity expenses with the same amount that would in high season cover only the accommodation. You may pay half price for your entire itinerary in green season compared to the dry season. Don´t you like that? Of course, we can help with your entire trip planning.
Everything is so GREEN
Keep in mind, Costa Rica is a tropical region with a variety of rainforest ecosystems. And in order to see that lush, green landscape we all love so much- it must rain.
In the rainy season, the animals of Costa Rica come to life. Not only is the forest rejuvenated with the rain, but so are the animals. Everything is green, food is plentiful, and new animals are born making the entire forest more active. It certainly helps that there are fewer people on the trails too.
