You won't find local weather on the internet. Typically it is sunny in the mornings and rain showers in the afternoons but not always. In order to know exactly what the weather is at any given moment, you gotta ask somebody that is there. July is one of my favorite months in this area. The mountains are green, sunsets and rainbows are amazing........enjoy!

We are in CR now, at the Arenal volcano area and will be going to the Westin on Wednesday. There are many taxis and private shuttle to take you anywhere. Lots of excursion opportunities. We found it difficult to learn about distances b4 we arrived. But in general, it takes longer, 2 lane roads, some tollroads. It was windy to get from the capital of San Jose to Arenal, and about 2 1/2 hours without rain or fog which is common now.

Sunrise and sunset is about 530-530 daily. Earlier darkness if it rains.

I recommend the tours, the experienced guides can show you SO much more than we could ever see. We went to the arenalbridges.com and took a guided tour,exceptional...saw toucans, vipers, wild turkeys and boar.

We were told to carry everything with us due to theft. We brought what we wouldn't mind losing, worse case.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Do we need to set up transportation ahead of time or are there plenty of taxis waiting at the airport? Also, the flights we are looking at don't arrive until 8ish at night, what types of problems could this pose?

There are plentiful taxis at the airport. If you want private transportation, you should arrange that ahead of time. www.ecotranscostarica.com gets good reviews.

Arriving at 8 pm-ish should pose no problems except that of a meal. What you could do is visit one of the great restaurants near the airport such as La Choza de Laurel for a meal before starting out for the Westin.
