When is the Green Season in Costa Rica?

The Green Season in Costa Rica refers to the rainy or wet season, which typically spans from May to November. The other months of the year are called the dry or Golden Season where rain is little to none in many parts of the country. So, when May comes around, the plants and much of the flora embrace and thrive with the first afternoon showers. You will experience this when staying at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin as it is immersed in the tropical dry forest. Sit on your terrace and see the forest transform and flourish with each rainfall.

While some travelers may be deterred by the idea of rain during their vacation, the Green Season offers its unique charm and numerous advantages which make traveling to Costa Rica during this time of the year experiencing nature´s magic, fantastically fun.
