If you pick up your phone right now and look at the weather forecast in Costa Rica I bet it will tell you 100% rain and thunderstorms everyday and while we may experience some rain on most days, the picture your weather application paints is a far cry from reality. For this reason, many hesitate to make travel plans to Costa Rica during green season, but ask any local or frequent traveler of Costa Rica and they will tell you it’s actually one of the best times to visit and here’s why:
With the drop in demand during these months airlines have some great deals to offer. Now offering direct flights from cities such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Houston, Charlotte, Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, LA and more, from airlines such as Southwest, American Airlines, Delta, Spirit and JetBlue ; getting to Costa Rica has never been easier. In fact, if you use sites like Kayak you can set alerts for specific routes to let you know when prices are more favorable.
While your weather application might suggest otherwise, the weather during the months of green season is actually spectacular. It’s true, most evenings, you are likely to experience a rain shower or storm passing through, but the days are just as beautiful and sunny like any other day you will experience during the summer months. Plus, green season is named just that for a reason. This is when Costa Rica is as its most vibrant and really shows off all of its beautiful flora and fauna. The mountainside becomes a deep green, flowers are blooming, the animals are active, and the evening showers bring a fresh cool breeze to be enjoyed during the first hours of the day.
Schools Out for Summer!
For most of our guests, green season months coincide with the summer months back home when the kids are out of school. Many families take advantage of this time to travel and reconnect and what better place to do that, than Costa Rica.
It might seem obvious, but with the added rain during the green season, the waterfalls of Costa Rica are at their finest. All of those beautiful waterfalls pictures that you saw while you were planning your trip will surely not disappoint during the green season months.
For all of you wave chasers out there, this is the perfect time to come to Costa Rica. During the green season months, surfers from around the world come to visit the famous beach break of Playa Hermosa to experience some of the biggest and most exciting waves of their life. For years, Playa Hermosa has drawn international attention, so much so that it has recently been given the honor and named as a World Surfing Reserve, a program of Save The Waves. “The program serves as a global model for preserving wave breaks and their surrounding areas by recognizing and protecting the key environmental, cultural, economic and community attributes of surfing areas.” Conveniently located less than 20 minutes from Los Sueños Resort, we highly suggest you come experience this amazing break for yourself.
