Weather in Arenal in December/itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi All, We are a family (parents and 18 and 21-year old) headed to Costa Rica from Dec. 14 to 23. Our son is studying at Monteverde Institute for the quarter so going there first to meet up with him and let him show us around, then had planned on the common itinerary of a couple additional days in Arenal, followed by 2-3 days on the Pacific coast. . My question:

Just saw the weather/rain maps of the micro-climates in CR and it looks like Nov./December are the rainiest months of the year in Arenal on that side of the mountains/coast. Any experience with this keeping folks from enjoying the views/nature. And is it really worth a visit after spending time in Monteverde? Is it perhaps a better/more relaxed trip to just head to the coast after 3 days in Monteverde?

Thanks!
