Activities in Tamarindo in September

Active family with adult kids going to Tamarindo this September. Are all of the activities available? For example, can we go river rafting and zip lining or are those things done only in Spring? Is it worth it to go on a catamaran sailing trip to snorkel when it might storm the whole day? I know you can rent snorkel equipment but is there anywhere south of the town of Tamarindo to snorkel?

As you can see by this map: costa-rica-guide.com/Weather/WeatherMap.html you can expect around 10" of rain for the whole month of September, based on typical rainfall patterns. So really, rain will not interfere much with whatever you want to do. Most of it will be in the form of afternoon showers.

Most things will be open and available to do. It is definitely worth going on a snorkel trip - maybe plan on a morning half-day trip.

Yes, you can go river rafting and experience zip lines.

You will be able to snorkel, and if it rains the water may be a little murky. Head over to Playa Conchal which is the best place for snorkeling. As HattieCostaRica said, it rains a lot in September, but you will see sunshine too. Pura Aventura is the zipline tour we use, however, it might be fun for you to do the Combo Tour at Buena Vista Lodge. For $80 per person if you have your own transportation, $170 if you need transportation, you get to go there and do ziplining, hot springs and mud, horseback riding, water slide and lunch.
