Does anyone have any tips or experiences they’d like to share? We are getting married in November but I would like to avoid the rainy season so we are thinking about holding off until next January. I’ve been looking at resorts in Drake Bay on the Osa Penninsula!

We were in Costa Rica for 10 days this past November. It only rained at night, it was beautiful during the day. Depending on what you are looking for in the honeymoon, I would recommend staying at two different places. The country has so much to offer, but it’s really spread out and driving there is not fun. This time we stayed at a hotel near Arenal (I can’t recall the name off the top of my head) for a few days and then we stayed at the Westin in Guanacaste for the rest of the time, we loved them both. (Both pretty far north and drier in climate than where you are looking). A few years ago we stayed at the JW Marriott and that was great as well.

We rented a house in Tamarindo a couple years ago. We went in February and the weather was awesome! Such a wonderful break from snowy Chicago. Anyway, we spent most of our time on the beach and exploring town. One great excursion we did was hiking the Arenal Volcano followed by the most relaxing visit to the hot springs.

We were in Costa Rica four years ago for our honeymoon. 10/10 would recommend. The pictures are coming up on my Facebook memories now and I really want to go back. We booked everything but flights through anywhere.com and had a great experience with them. Stayed in the Arenal Volcano area due to the hot springs.

We got engaged in Costa Rica June 2016 and its still our favorite destination so far. 😍 Stayed in the Guanacaste area at Andaz but I agree with the 1st poster. If its possible try to stay in two different areas. We did a Palo Verde river tour which was amazing but it took over an hour just to get there. Would like to stay in the Arenal area next time. June is rainy season but thats what we wanted. Its not all day every day rain. We had a couple evening showers and maybe some light rain for less than an hour during the day but none of it lasts very long. Two days it only rained late at night. But it depends on where you stay and what you hope to see. I was more interested in lush green vs. dry brown nature.
