Remember:
The climate in Costa Rica in august ranges from good to very bad depending on the region and city.

warning in august the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

That month is not the best month to visit Costa Rica. The weather in Puerto Limón, Tamarindo and Liberia (Guanacaste) is OK but just acceptable. The sun is not there all the time and you risk you to be soaked by rain frequently. Nonetheless, if you don't plan a beach and sun trip in Costa Rica but rather discovery of heritage, this climate may be enough. In addition, there are surely fewer tourists during this period.

It's much worse in Escazu, Alajuela, Puntarenas, Uvita, Montezuma, Monteverde, Puerto Jiménez, San Jose, Quepos and Heredia and surrounding areas where the climate is even worse. We really do not recommend you to go to these areas in august.
