Hi Beatrice, we are 5 Cousins from 3 continents and our 7x 10-14 yr olds searching for a cultural location for a 1-2 week holiday in early July.Costa Rica is at the top of my list but others concerned about rain/humidity. Can you advise if the rain is just for a few hours in the afternoon? Is the Caribbean too wet at this time so should we be looking at the interior and the Pacific? Can you advise a resort/hotel with beach/pool (and some surf?). Any advice appreciated. Thank you, Richard

     The nation's climate is classically divided into two major seasons: rainy and dry. The dry season runs from January through May and the rainy season from May to November and December. Locally, the seasons were named by the early Spanish colonizers, who compared them to their own Mediterranean climate, calling the dry months "verano" or summer, and the rainy, grey and gloomy months "environ" or winter. It is interesting to note that some of the coldest temperatures are registered during the early dry season or "summer". Climate is, of course, a complex phenomenon, and there are many aspects of the weather in Costa Rica that are worth examining in more detail, such as the influences of wind, rain, and topography

    On the Caribbean slope the rainy season begins from mid to late April and continues through December and sometimes January. The wettest months are July and November, with a dry spell that occurs around August or September.

     On the Caribbean slope the rainy season begins from mid to late April and continues through December and sometimes January. The wettest months are July and November, with a dry spell that occurs around August or September. Major storms, called "temporales del Atlantico" occasionally buffet this slope between September and February, when it will rain continuously for several days; but an average rainy season day will begin clear with a few hours of sunshine that will give way to clouds and rain by the afternoon. In contrast, the driest months of February and March, might be almost entirely without rainfall.
