There is so much misinformation on the internet about water in Costa Rica. I will do my best here to explain it to you. One of the main reasons so many foreigners live in the Papagayo region of Costa Rica, instead of anywhere else, is because we have the absolute best weather of any of the beach areas. Period. Hands down. 70% of Costa Rica is technically a rain forest. Key word: RAIN.
The area of Playa Panama, Playa Hermosa, Playas del Coco and Ocotal has the least amount of rainfall of anywhere in the country. We actually are one of the only areas in the country that experiences a true dry season. From January to April we don’t get any rain at all. Not one single drop. You hear people say, dry season and rainy season. This is not true. We have a dry season, a green season and a rainy MONTH – October. Eleven months a year we have fantastic weather, and then its one heavy month of rain.
