When to Escape

December to March

Generally considered the dry season.

May to November

Temperatures rise in April and the rains arrive on the Pacific side.

The Atlantic side has no specific dry season but there is less rainfall between March and September.
 In Costa Rica’s tropical rainforest it’s best to prepare for all kinds of weather. Expect most mornings to be sunny and clear followed by rain showers in the afternoon. During the day the weather will be hot and humid with temperatures around 28 to 30 degrees Celsius. Evenings are usually clear; occasionally you might need a light jacket.

“Pacuare is a true eco-lodge, the impact of its operations are kept to an absolute minimum. And when it comes to the rainforest activities, everything is geared around supporting conservation and providing benefits for nearby communities. Bird watch, hike, swim, fish, explore the rainforest canopy, visit a traditional indigenous community, or simply relax. It’s up to you.”
