We get the rain but not the attitude.
Too south to be directly whacked by hurricanes, we do get big rains. This may happen several times a year, but when is anybodyâ€™s guess.
Your typical rainy season day starts with a bright sun and endless empty beaches: not a footprint to found. Lots of animal life moving around. It’s an incredibly nice and peaceful time to be here: cooler, greener and fewer folks. A great time to explore and enjoy the ocean and outdoors.
Around lunch, the sky starts to cloud. The big question: will the hard rain start before or after dinner? When you feel the air temperature drop, grab an umbrella. Here it comes. It may rain for an hour or all night long. It doesn’t matter. You’re going to sleep well knowing you will wake to another bright sunny day.
The Osa Peninsula gets 300 – 400 inches of rain a year. September through early December marks the real rainy season.
