2nice itinerary. lucky you.
take a look here: http://costa-rica-guide.com/Weather/WeatherMap.html this will show you typical rainfall patterns at various times of the year so you can plan accordingly. with your itinerary - probably better to plan during the months of january through may. maybe june or even july - but no later than that.

4you've got the right attitude! july would be a bit better if you could do that. august still ok for lots of areas. check the rainfall map and see for yourself.
if you are interested in birding, this is a great resource: http://www.costaricanbirdroute.com/sites.htm nice area, not touristy and great for birds. of course, there are many other areas of interest to birders but some might be too rainy to be productive.
