Guanacaste north Pacific coast of Costa Rica
Guanacaste, the “gem of Costa Rica”, is well known for its stunning beaches, national parks, and abundant wildlife. The province is the sunniest and driest in Costa Rica, with a considerably shorter rainy season than the rest of the country.
Dry season is from November to May with average temperatures 33ºC (91ºF). Rainy or “green” season runs from May to November. Green season showers are usually late afternoon or at night, still leaving plenty of time for outdoor activities, excursions and sunbathing with an average temperature of 31ºC (88ºF). During this period “El Veranillo” or “little summer” occurs mid July and the region experiences a few weeks of dry conditions.
