What is the weather like?

We live in the rain forest so probably at some point during your stay you will have rain.  Normally it rains at night and clears up during the day.  Most days are sunny and warm.  Wind is almost non-existent here with the exception of light breezes off the ocean.  You can get updates on the weather at our personal weather station here.

What animals can I expect to see?

There are over 900 species of birds in Costa Rica so you will see lots and lots of beautiful birds!  You are also likely to see sloths, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, iguanas, lizards, and perhaps kinkajous.  There is a free app that shows you the species you might encounter in the the area where you are staying, Andriod or Apple .  Click in the upper right hand corner to change the language to either Spanish or English.

Q

A

Is it safe?

In a word - yes - it is safe.  However, petty theft is a problem throughout Costa Rica.  It is important to make sure you do not carry valuable items with you, that you don't leave items unattended on the beach or in public places, and that you lock the doors and windows in the casita when you leave.  If you want to go into town and return after dark, take a taxi  - do not walk or ride a bike after dark.  The primary thing to remember is to use common sense.  Don't throw caution to the wind just because you are in the beautiful place.  Be aware and be careful.
