What’s the Weather Like in the Tortuguero Canals, Costa Rica  in July and August

The weather at the Tortuguero Canals in  Costa Rica during the months of July and August is rainy, however you may experience some sunny mornings, even a full day of Sun.  I travel to Costa Rica to see the  the canals in August for three days and I had two days of full sun and on the third day it started raining around 1 p.m. and rained well into the night.  Since this area is located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, it get a lot more rain than the rest of the country.  I suppose it has to do with the trade winds coming off the Atlantic Ocean bringing the rain clouds with them.  Therefore this area is lush and green with hundreds of different tropical plants and trees.

We did out tours of the Tortuguero Canals in the morning and when the rain came in the afternoon, I decided to go to my room and read my book, in bed.  A great afternoon!

This area of Costa Rica is one of my favorites.  It is so beautiful!  And remote.  Very few people live here because there are few roads so  the area is accessible by boat.
