Costa Rica /Annexation of Guanacaste Day and annual weather

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with The Oaks Tamarindo

Monday we are celebrating a national holiday in Costa Rica, the Annexation of Guanacaste Day, commemorating the 183d anniversary of the annexation of Guanacaste.  On July 25, 1825, the citizens of Guanacaste peacefully voted to secede from Nicaragua and become a part of Costa Rica.

The celebration is Monday because it fits better with a second holiday Thursday for the Virgin of Los Angeles, the patron saint of Costa Rica. An annual pilgrimage of the faithful begins today and concludes Thursday at the Basilica in Cartago, the seat of the Catholic Church in Costa Rica, where the image of the Virgin Mary appeared to a peasant 500 years ago. This can make driving this week interesting.

So, not too much work will be getting done this week. To while away the time, I thought I would share an official weather site from the National Meteorological Institute of Costa Rica, at http://www.imn.ac.cr/index.html, showing average minimum and maximum temperatures, and monthly rainfall, at Liberia International Airport. Since the airport is well inland, the weather is slightly more moderate at the beaches, although similar.

What you can see at a glance is the peak of the "green season" in September and October, and the start of "summer" beginning in November and continuing through the end of April. Of course, everyone wants to visit from December through March, and considering the weather in the U.S. and Canada at that time, maybe for good reason. However, if you want to learn the top ten reasons for visiting during the "green season", let me know. And if you want to earn commissions for referring clients interested in Costa Rica real estate, well, that's why we're here. Check out www.theoakstamarindo.com.
