On the other hand, the combination of heat and abundant rain in some areas make the climate throughout October in Costa Rica, hardly suitable for outdoor activities.

Costa Rican East Coast in October

Like the locality of Puerto Limón, the eastern coast of the country enjoys the gradual decrease in temperatures. It is now possible to enjoy sunny days without having to face the heat wave. This is especially true as the rain that occurs from time to time does not influence the quality of the weather in Costa Rica throughout October.

The Center of Costa Rica in October

As the center of the country is the land of predominance for the heavy rains, the sunny days are rather rare. With the return of the rain, the slight showers give way to very intense rains. This is what makes waterproof clothing indispensable accessories.

The West Coast of Costa Rica in October

In most places on the Pacific coast, rain and heat continue to influence the climate. However, the geographic configurations make the city of Tamarindo and the city of Liberia, located further north, already welcoming with a more mild weather.

October is not the best month to go to in Costa Rica. The weather in Puerto Limón, Tamarindo and Liberia (Guanacaste) is ok but correct. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain regularly. However, if you don't plan a pool & relaxation holiday but rather discovery of heritage, this climate could be appropriate. In addition, there are definitely fewer tourists dyring this month of october.

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 very bad. We really do not recommend you to visit these areas this month.
