Weather details in august

The climatic conditions of Costa Rica throughout August are characterized by the presence of heat and especially, the abundance of rains. Because of the geographical location of each locality, some are more humid - as is the case in San José, while others are less so. Still, the climate throughout August in Costa Rica does not lend itself to outdoor activities.

The West Coast of Costa Rica in August

Apart from the locality of Tamarindo which is experiencing a relative decline in rainfall, most cities on the west coast of Costa Rica are experiencing the throes of the rainy season; through the abundance of showers. Montezuma or Puntarenas are not spared, with rainy days covering the whole of the month.

The Center of Costa Rica in August

Besides the freshness of the morning, the showers - which can be moderate or very intense - occur every day throughout the month. Since the moments of sunshine correspond only to a few cloud thinnings, impermeable clothes is very important. The weather in Costa Rica throughout August does not lend itself to outdoor activities.

The East Coast of Costa Rica in August

Puerto Limón allows to enjoy sunny moments. One will then have the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities, while enjoying the pleasant warmth.

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

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.
