Rainy season travel to Costa Rica and Panama

by lionel st »

My wife and I are planning a trip to San Jose, Guanacaste and Panama City.  We can either go in late May, early June or early October.  We have been reading about the rainy season and were wondering what you all think would be the drier time to go? And are there other issues we should be aware of at that time of year? Thanks!

Dry season is roughly November through April. So I'd go in May because, unfortunately, some roads will wash out and be damaged (HUGE potholes) by the rainy season as it goes along. If there's any way you can go in April or earlier, I would. Some folks say they love the "Green Season" (ie the rainy season)....but they tend to be the people who work for the tourist board!
