what to do? weather

Hello,

My husband and I are looking to travel to the Guanacaste area June 2-10. Our biggest concern before we book our trip is the weather-has any one been during this time? We are looking for relaxation on the beach/at the resort (we would like sunny weather for this and not rain the whole time) and we are looking for adventure-zip lines/waterfalls/etc. What do you experts recommend to do? Places to eat? Beaches to go to? We looked at staying at the Hilton Papagayo, but we are open to anything. Thanks in advance for your advice!

Well I would say June is a good month to visit. June is part of the green (rainy season), you will get some rains normally it would be sunny and nice in the morning and a few rains in the afternoon or the other way around. The good news everything will be greener, you get better rates and it is not so crowded.

Even in the Green Season, the Guanacaste region is one of the driest on the Pacific Coast. Do expect some showers, but it should not be so bad. But really no way to really tell about the rain.

As the others mentioned, June is a good time of the year for northern Guanacaste.

Hacienda Guachipelin is located about an hour away from Hilton Papagayo and offers adventures such as canopy zipline, tubing, horseback riding, canyoning, waterfalls and more. You can get a day pass which includes a couple of the main activities, volcanic mud painting and hot springs. Congo Trails Canopy is another good option and closer to the resort. They have a pretty good zipline and small park with monkeys.

If you stay at Hilton Papagayo, you can go to Coco for shopping or nightlife. Playa Hermosa is nearby and is a very pretty beach. The Ginger Restaurant is excellent (you will need reservations) as is the restaurant at Bosque del Mar Hotel. Both are located at Playa Hermosa. The latter is surprisingly inexpensive given the fact that it is on the beach, great ambiance and excellent food.

June, July and August are my favorite months here in Guanacaste! The mountains are green again and it cools down a little after the intense dry heat of March, April and May.

Sunsets are amazing and sometimes you get rainbows at the same time after the afternoon showers.
