Weather, Quepos/Arenal

Anyone have any recent weather updates? I know it's unpredictable and weather reports will always say daily rain showers, but is anyone there now or recently have any info for me about temps and rain? Is there any sun throughout the day between showers? Temps look to be in upper 70's, is that correct? We will b staying near Manuel Antonio for a few days, then Arenal. Thanks for any info!

There has been rain just about everyday and some thunder storms at night (actually pretty amazing light show). Rain starts about 2PM, goes for about an hour then clears . Right now sunny, hazy, warm, a little humid..just about text book for this time of year. Have a great holiday.

Thanks! Sounds like what I expected. I will ignore all weather forecasts and enjoy the afternoon showers. What temperature can we expect? 80's?

Oh yah, 80's at least, and definitely some humidity. Goes like this, nice sunrise, comfortable, brief wind around 8, then nothing, heat rises, then nice breeze starts around 10:30, a little relief, then the haze, clouds, the rains, and a decent afternoon evening. Tomorrow?..repeat.

Sounds good to me. I like a little late afternoon nap before dinner anyway!

Wait until you hear the howler monkeys in the morning, as well as roosters at 3:30! You will be glad to have an afternoon nap, but plan a visit to Barba Rojas in MA (lots of ex-pats go there) or Wacky Wandas in Quepos to exchange travel stories. Cafe Milagro in MA and Quepos for a nice afternoon coffee and home made banana bread and much...much more to do while you are there. What was that lyric..."I can sleep when I die"? CR has too much to do and see, enjoy your holiday.
