This years rainy (aka green) season, has apparently taken a real round out of Guanacaste and paying close attention the areas around San Carlos.
The green season 2011 saw the inundation of Guanacaste which wreaked havoc throughout the province.
250mm of rain fell here throughout a 12 day span causing flash flooding and the probable risk of damage to next years crops.
16 shelters were erected in Guanacaste alone which were quickly occupied to full capacity.
Temperatures dropped by 5 degrees from this years average temperature during the final stages of hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico.
Although hurricanes never directly strike Costa Rica, their effects are often felt. This year was no exception.
However the rains have subsided and the affected have begun to put the pieces back together while we set the sails for high season in Guanacaste.
