We are attempting family vacation in August in Playa Negra. What is the weather like down there this time of year?
August: Hot. Every other month of the year: Hot.
Actually, August isn't bad because you will get a few cooling showers in the evening.
It will probably be cloudy in the afternoons and rain every couple of days in the afternoon or evening. Yes, like Hattie says - Hot and Muggy.
It is really hot in August?
You can expect about 30-32 Celsius or the high 80's.
I was being sarcastic.
Well, my (sweaty) experience is Guanacaste in August is more like low to mid 90's for a few hours each day -- unless it is cloudy all day and then high 80's.
yea, it gets a bit muggy up there that time of year. Great time to come though, ocean water is cool enough to make any heat a non-issue.
