weather in october


i am very excited that my boyfriend booked a vacation package to Paradisus Playa Conchal for oct. 8th -oct 12th.

i am a little worried about the weather though...

i see that october is the wet month in costa rica...

i am a pretty easy going person and an hr or 2 of rain would not bother me but i also enjoy relaxing in the sun and i am just wondering if i will be able to do that!

can someone please tell me how much it usually rains around this time? i knw the weather is unpredictable but it worries me a bit...

Thank you!

Tamarindo, Costa...

Hot, humid, rainy afternoons or could rain all week. To sunbath you need to be aware of when the sun is out, and take advantage when the opportunities arise.

Here is a link to the yearly weather pattern in the area:


There are plenty of other things to do. When it rains everyone chills out and people become more social.

Hard to give you the correct answer...but if we go by weather patterns ...most of the time some rain in the afternoons...nice mornings...

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

It will be rainy alright. We have been there in September because of business demands, and I would pick another month if possible. We had very heavy rains, and the subsequent heavy humidity when the sun is out. More likely flooding, road damage and transportation delays.

If the mornings are sunny, take advantage of them. Afternoon and night showers are typical.

Take some surf lessons while you are there and you won't even notice it's raining. There are some good options at nearby Playa Grande and Matt Craig mentioned in this forum is a good instructor as well.
