Some people are hesitant to visit Costa Rica in the “green season”, thinking it will be raining the whole time. Luckily this is not the case! Typically, the Green season weather is sunny in the morning, cloudy by lunch and then rains by late afternoon for a couple of hours. This leaves plenty of time for going to the beach and having wonderful adventures on the many tours available in the area. And, when it does rain, you can relax in your beautiful luxury vacation villa! If you are still undecided, here are 5 excellent reasons you should not be afraid to rent a Costa Rica vacation villa in green season:
#1 There are no crowds. Things can get pretty quiet around here in September and October. This is great news for tourists! The best thing is, the tours are not full and sometimes you end up on virtually a private tour. The beaches are pristine, no reservations are necessary for dinner, and you will meet lots of locals out and about.
#2 Discounts! Another big bonus? The price of Costa Rican vacation rental homes can be up to 50% off in green season! You can experience all the luxury and pampering you get in a high end home for only a fraction of the price. For instance, our Villa #3, The Beach House http://www.manuelantoniovacationrentals.com/properties/villa-3, is currently renting for half price! You can’t beat that deal.
#3 Tons of animals! Not only can you get big time discounts on Costa Rica vacation rentals, you can also see more wildlife at this time of year than at any other. Monkeys, sloths, iguanas abound, as well as animals you don’t see all year round- like humpback whales! September and October are prime whale watching months, when the whales come to Costa Rica to have their babies. Catamaran and sailing tours have been amazing this year, with mother and baby whales being spotted almost every day.
#4 Moderate temperatures. Because of the frequent rainy spells, the temperature is much more moderate this time of year. You don’t need to run the a/c constantly and things are much more comfortable. You can kick back in your luxury vacation villa, and enjoy the tropical breezes.
#5 Everything is green! The name says it all – Green Season. The jungle is so verdant and beautiful this time of year, exactly as you imagine a jungle should look. Gardens at the vacation rentals homes in Manuel Antonio are lush and full, and birds are everywhere. You will love it!
