Costa Rica’s rainy season has been unusually late getting started this year, at least in Guanacaste. But Howler readers can be all set to enjoy this time of year in ways that may seem surprising. Our related cover stories aim to challenge common rainy season myths, while suggesting a variety of outdoor and indoor activities alike — from whitewater rafting to museum visits.


We’re delighted to introduce a new food and dining section, including traditional Tico recipes and a reader’s choice page with eatery recommendations. In the same issue, you’ll find fascinating flora and fauna features, mountain bike tour inspiration and stunning beach images viewed through a drone’s lens. We highlight the sports of kitesurfing and pickleball in Costa Rica, as well as an innovative dog rescue initiative and a local community band’s Rose Parade success story. Our artist spotlight shines on the captivating works of a muralist and a wood sculptor.
