costa rica in Oct or Dec?

Hoping the Costa Rica experts will be able to help me with a trip that my mother wants to take in either Oct or early Dec.

She is looking for an all inclusive type hotel. We were thinking maybe the Westin in Playa Condral but am concerned about the rain.

Any suggestions you have would be appreciated!

December has better chances for niccer weather. October is normally the rainiest month

Well in other years I will agree but this year we are kind of dry even during rainy season..

Great choice the WESTIN the best AI in our country...BY FAR!

Most definitely December! Our rainy season (the height of which is Sept. and Oct.) has been pretty tame so far but let's not tempt the rain Gods on that!

you can get a better rate in October, plus it is not so crowded this time of the year ....plus this year it is not so rainy, so rain should not discourage you to travel in October....

Thank you everyone for your responses!

Will probably shoot for Dec since it will give us more time to figure out our plans.

Couple of more questions.

-Should we fly into San Jose and try to get a flight to Liberia, we are coming from San Diego.

-also the flight that looks the best doesn't get into San Jose until 8 or 9pm, will that be too late to find a flight?

Thank you!
