Proyecto Asis in the Rain?

We (finally!) leave in 9 days for our long-planned CR trip, so I'm trying to finalize our plans. Visiting Proyecto Asis is a must-do for my animal-loving daughter and parents. I'm thinking it will be best for us to do the 1/2 day 8:30 am tour on the day we leave Arenal, after checking out of our rental home, since Proyecto Asis is located along the drive back to SJO. My only concern with this plan is the weather - I had planned to wait to book activities when we get there, so we can see what the weather is going to do, but since Proyecto Asis works best on our last day - will it matter if it's raining during the tour? Will it affect the experience at all?

Thanks for any advice you can give me!

There are a lot of variables. If it does rain (and it may not...) and it's just a light drizzle, nothing will be affected. If it's a heavy downpour, then you will need to shelter in the area where there are tables and chairs until the rain passes.

Your best chance of no rain is in the morning - but you might get a light drizzle or intermittent showers.

The heavy downpours don't last long and with intermittent showers, you "do your thing" when the rain stops and shelter if it starts up again.

In general book everything in the morning, best chance on good weather.

Even though it means driving the same route a 2nd time, I would consider doing this on another day since it might be a little too rushed trying to get everyone fed, packed up and checked out of the rental house in order to be at Proyecto Asis by 8:15.
