There are two seasons in Costa Rica. The green, or rainy season, happens ins May, June, September, and October. It doesn’t necessarily mean it rains all day long, but mostly during the night with short showers during the day. There is occasional rain in July and August (or little summer), mostly blue sky. Dry season: November through April. There is no rain, blue sky, and sunshine all day long.
The water temperature is almost the same all year round. There is no need for a wetsuit. There are always waves for advanced surfers as well as beginners. Most of the time, waves are medium size, approximately 1 to 3 feet. If you are a good swimmer, you can swim in the lineup, but most likely, you will be just playing in the waves.
