Costa Rica weather in OctoberHi,
We want to go to Costa Rica in the begining of October but would like to know how the weather is at that time of year.
Also, where would you recommend us to go. We are particulary intrested to go to "both seas", so to speak.
What is the average daily budget (I know this is a hard question but to know the minimum standard cost would always be good to know).
Thank you for your help.

2I have been to Costa Rica in October in 05 and 06. Both times we were lucky and had good weather in the Puerto Viejo area. Last year we did a loop into Panama and then up the Pacific coast of CR. We had heavy rains for most of week we traveled up the west coast. Your chances of less rain would be better in the Tamarindo area.

7It is the hieght of Rainy season. I have been here twice in October, and though there was sun, there was mostly rain, mist and clouds. Elevated areas are worse.
You may luck out, but basically, figure on rain...Osa Corcovado is closed, of that says anything about the rain, when lodges close for 2 months...

8I was in and around Puerto Viejo in October 2006. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we had an amazing time. We started our trip at Arenal. It rained only rained half of the first day. The second day was overcast but warm. We really enjoyed that as well. The Tabacon Hot Springs were beautiful and not busy at all.
