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!

May is a great time to visit. It is the beginning of rainy season and you can expect some showers off and on or just afternoon or evening showers. The rainiest months come later in the year - really starting in August.

Yes, I think that May is the ideal time to visit these places, since already in early October heavy rains begin to flow. There are exceptions, but still. I was last year in Panama in May, because I myself love to travel. I'm blogger and often write my notes about traveling on my blog, as well as on another resource (where you can get assignment help online), where I also help students with their tasks.
