Green Season in Guanacaste


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.

    Don – your article is much appreciated. I’m interested in the roads between Liberia, Nicoya and the coast. Much damage there? I’m planning to come down from Canada late January – Early February. Sounds like the government is throwing money at the problem. Do you think things will be restored to something like normal by then?

    • Absolutely! The roads will be fine by then and back to “normal”…hahaha…CR standards normal but yeah…you’ll be good to go. Hope you enjoy your trip. Been here before?
