The Weather of the Guanacaste Region of Costa Rica

Any time of the year is the perfect time to visit Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste!  Between November and April the weather is consistently sunny and dry with no rain whatsoever.  During May through October, known as the green season, you might experience a delightful rain shower in the afternoon that disappears just as quickly as it arrived - leaving the sky sunny, fresh and clear once again.  

Any time of the year is a good time to visit - each season having different advantages.  Tourism is much heavier December thru April because it is the perfect time to escape colder temperatures and to enjoy the guaranteed daily sun and heat of Guanacaste.  During these months it is very easy to find an abundance of choices for live entertainment and energetic gatherings.  Rain is non-existent during these months.

If you want to avoid the tourist fuss and obtain more economical rates for lodging, the green season offers tranquility and an abundance of beauty.  Trees and shrubs turn brilliant green and put forth their vibrant flowers.  The landscape becomes alive with color, fragrance and texture.  At this time of the year the rivers run high, the dry-forests turn green and lush -- and it is a great time to experience eco-tourism at its finest!
