For Costa Rica’s east coast visitors, October is a good time to visit (weather-wise). For our Pacific-side readers, we’re usually in the heart of the rainy season. How much rain, for how long, depends on your location. Mountain regions can be a challenge also with rain and cool temps.
You can blame the normal heating of the earth’s tilt and the sun’s position for causing the precipitation formula for a wetter experience.
But there is lots to do while it rains. Some attractions (as long as there’s no lightning) can still accommodate walking and riding tours. You can relax (you remember how to?), read a book, search Howler articles and take virtual tours of Costa Rica.
Be safe with mudslides and trees randomly deciding to fall. Outside of those two items, accept the drops and Pura Vida.
