August in Costa Rica: When Greenery Reigns Supreme

August is deep into the rainy season in Costa Rica, causing many would-be travelers to ask themselves this question: is August a good time to visit Costa Rica? The short answer? Absolutely, as long as you know what to expect. There's never a bad time to visit Costa Rica, as long as you understand what's happening around you. As far as the rain goes, August isn't so bad. And besides, it's the rain that makes this country so green and lush in the first place. It's the rain that fills the rivers and waterfalls and brings out the wildlife.
