Weather around Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica

Many tourist have asked me about when is best time to travel to the Arenal Volcano to get the best weather? There is not precise answer for that question.  The weather around the Arenal areas is rainly all year.  There is no rainy or dry season.   However, the month of March seems to be the best month to get the most sunny days. And September and October being the most rainy.

My advice is if you are planning to visit the area of the Arenal Volcano, go ahead and go and don’t think about rain or shine.  Because if you get up very early in the morning around 5:30 a.m. when the sun is just coming up you have a very good chance of seeing the summit of the volcano with its frequent eruptions.  Also if you plan your activities in the morning chances are you will get at least some sun in the morning hours.

The jungle lushness of this area of Costa Rica is simply because of the heavy rainfall.  You will see the agricultural areas in the region and see how well the crops thrive.  There is papaya, pineapple, bananas,  coconut, and yucca.  And you will see many farms which grow ornamental plants which are exported to the US, Canada, and Europe.

The weather around the Arenal volcano and the lush rainforest  forms a perfect habitat for  hundreds of species of tropical birds.  You will see many toucans flying free in the rain forest canopy.
