The Rainy Season In Samara

Rainy season...two little words that strike fear in tourists around the world. After all, who wants rain on their Costa Rican vacation? But for many families, the rainy season is the easiest time to travel because of their children's school schedules. So today we're answering the question, what is the rainy season in Samara really like?

What is the rainy season like in Samara?

Typically the first few months of the year are sunny, dry and hot in Samara. And then comes May and often, the rains come with it. What do those rains look like? Like all things Mother Nature, there's no hard and fast rule, but typically the rainy season brings a pattern of sunny mornings and rainy afternoons. That said, sometimes those rainy afternoons extend through the evening or overnight. And sometimes, those rainy nights extend into rainy mornings. And on occasion, there will be a string of mostly rainy days but that tends to be the exception and not the rule.

Then comes "Veranillo de San Juan," a mini-high season, where there is typically a break in the rains for a couple of weeks. HIstorically the schools were out for these 2 weeks so that everyone, even the kids, could go to the coffee plantations to help pick the coffee beans that would be ready to harvest then. Again, no hard and fast rule, but typically it falls in late July. It's a lovely break before the heaviest months of rain which are September and October.

In the words of Samareños

But rather than take our word for it, here are some quotes about rainy season from those who know it best, Samareños- people who live in Samara.

  • "Even more beautiful - more lush and green."
  • "Not as hot (and when I say that I mean by a couple of degrees) & occasional evening rain but most of the day still resembling tropical paradise."
  • "Not only is it cooler, and more green, the sunsets are spectacular!"
  • "Actually rainy season is my favorite time of the year, everything turns lush green, lots of wildlife and flowers everywhere and best of all, much fewer people."
  • "The best part about the rainy season is the waterfalls. They are full and flowing and the hikes are incredible. And you still get some sunshine when the rain clears."
  • "The rainy season is simply the best!"

Doesn't sound too bad, does it? It's not, especially if you're prepared for it. So, pack your raincoat, your umbrella, consider investing in rubber rain boots and surrender yourself to getting a little bit wet!

Recently fulfilled a long-term dream of purchasing land with the help of Nick Ruhlow. Can't express enough of what a wonderful experience the entire process was. Nick was a true professional from start to finish. Not to mention easy to be around. He is straight forward and honest. He was patient with viewing properties and helpful with all our questions. Trust was built quickly, and honestly, I am not sure I would have felt so solid without his help and guidance. He has referred me to other professionals needed and has definitely gone the extra mile. I encourage anyone who is selling/buying to meet with Nick.
