Weather Update

I am headed to the Arenal area late next week 11/18-11/21, everything I am checking shows constant rain. Does anyone know if this is infact the case? I expected some showers, but forecasts show steady rain. Yuck!

Very hard to predit weather. It is sunny now but do expect some rains. It might be sunny and nice in the morning and a few hours of rain in the afternoon or the other way around. Have a great trip!

Dear SoFlaNole


Thank you for coming...let me try to explain something about MY country weather!

Costa Rica...a tiny country maybe the size of Virginia have the 4% of the biodiversity on EARTH...4%...we have more different birds than USA and Canada combined...

In a matter of a few miles the weather may change and will change any time...

We have so many climate zones...that is incredible the variations!

Today great weatherd in San Jose...I flew to Herradura this afternoon...just some dark clouds by Santa Ana Hills...by what we call el Monte del Avion...then clean skies...coming back some showers around Pavas Airport and now an incredible night!

Honestly...I thing you can have great chances of some great weather...and maybe some good old showers...but never all day rain!

Yesterday in La Fortuna was a GORGEOUS day! There was rain but it didn't come until about 4pm. This morning it rained all morning but now the sun looks like it's going to peek out at any moment. Yes there may be rain every day but it's not all day (at least not this week). Just expect there will be rain at least once a day but don't stress about it! :-) The rain keeps everything nice & green...."rain forest". :-) Enjoy!

Bring your sun screen and umbrella.. this is a rainforrest kind of place. if you dont like the weather wait 10 minutes nothing last long here. I have lived here 20 years and now dont even realize whether is is raining or not unless I am driving. In some parts of this country we get 65 inches of rain in November. Just bring a good book and sunggle up with someone you love when it rains.

Well it seems it will rain in Arenal area, since we will be there from 11/17-11/20 i might as well purchase my tours when I reach there and deal with the touring companies at La Fortuna.
