Costa Rica in July - weather, packing, itineary

Jump to last reply

We plan to visit CR for 9 nights in mid-July...I understand - it is a rainy season..but how bad is it ? is it even worth making a trip ? If yes, then would someone please help us with itineary...So far, we have:

Arriving SJO late afternnon
1 night in San Jose, rent 4x4
Drive to Arenal next morning 2-3 days in Arenal
Then Monteverde (2 days ?)


Any other suggestions ? Does it make sense to go to the Carribean part ? I heard that during the rainy season the roads to Carribean coast are not safe....

If we go , what to pack ?

Thank you, ALL
