Costa Rica News – I love the afternoon showers during “green season” in Costa Rica but from time to time the sun is going to stay shining throughout the day.
We have experienced periods of significant rain reduction, sometimes amounting to even periods of dry consecutive days amidst this rainy season. It’s normal to have some quick dry spells between July 15th and August 15th.
El Nino’s presence may have contributed to the weather pattern, creating strong wind gusts-up to 76 kilometers per hour. The wind went through several areas of the national territory. Guanacaste is expected to stay especially dry this year.
According to Juan Diego Naranjo, during the current hurricane season, only the Ana, Bill and Claudette hurricanes have been registered (out of 8 expected), the first two in the gulf of Mexico and the other on the outskirts of the US, none of which have affected our country.
