The Secret About Tamarindo Weather
Everybody knows that Costa Rica has one of the best climates in the entire world. When people flock to vacation in or retire to a country warm enough to go surfing, hiking, or bike riding any of the year, it is no wonder why Costa Rica is “Pura Vida” paradise. But what many people do not realize is that blissful weather may not be entirely available countrywide.
It is incredible how vastly different the climate changes are from region to region in this small country. You can drive a couple hours in one direction and feel as if you’re in an entirely different weather zone. In fact, the coldest city in Costa Rica is Cartago, which averages only 19.1 C (66.4 F) each year.
If you want to visit or live in the warm, breezy, sunshine-y picture of Costa Rica you have in your mind, you are going to want to pick your spot carefully.
Tamarindo is popular tourist destination on the Pacific Ocean. The secret is this: there is beautiful sunshine and hot weather all year long. You want to surf while the rest of the world is scraping snow off their windshields? Come on over to Tamarindo!
Throughout the year, Tamarindo temperatures stay wonderfully consistent. The warmest month of the year, April, averages a high of 34 °C (93 °F), while the cooler months, September, October, and November, average highs of 29 °C (84 °F).
Tamarindo, like the rest of Costa Rica, essentially has two seasons: wet and dry. In rainy season, May to November, you may be worried that months of torrential downpour will keep you away from soaking up the sun on the sand or catching the waves.
But with the lowest rainfall in Costa Rica, Tamarindo offers you plenty of sunshine to keep going. Sure, it may rain nearly daily during wet season, but the rain typically only last a couple hours. Often during rainy season you can still go surfing in the morning with the warm sun on your back, then simply come back in to rest during the afternoon shower.
In fact, even during the rainiest part of rainy season, Tamarindo still averages 5 full hours of sunshine during the day.
Tamarindo just may the epitome of ideal weather for anybody who loves the beach life. With daily sunshine and wonderfully hot temperatures, moving to or visiting Tamarindo will give you that peaceful Pura Vida every day of the year.

We are- UNHAPPILY- home safe. Would much rather be back in Tamarindo. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING you did to make our stay a joy ! We look very much forward to seeing you on our next trip to Costa Rica. PURA VIDA !
While my computer is still running here, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you for your help during our stay.
When we first came to your office, we were in dire straights and in desperate need of assistance. Andrea was extremely compassionate, spoke with candor, and had a "can do attitude" that was of immense help.
In addition, Andrea has put us in contact with Steve, with whom we are working, preparing to view a little property that might be just what we are looking for at this particular time.
In addition, having gotten to know Andrea personally as well as professionally has been our great pleasure. I wanted to let you know what a tremendous asset she is to your company. She is a great treasure -- a one in a million.
We had so much fun at Buena Vista. Thanks for arranging that with Memo.
I also want to say many thanks for all that you have done. We have enjoyed Costa Rica and I have found you so helpful with everything and a pleasure to deal with that it was a very stress free vacation. When I do come back here hopefully you will still be doing what what you do.
Our last couple of days will be spent enjoying the sunshine and eating at great restaurants. Sincerely,
Laurel and Tony,
The both of you were fantastic with us throughout the property search and purchase process. As we had mentioned, two other attempts to find thorough, attentive, responsive agents to work with in Tamarindo were failures. I expect that we are more work to deal with than many others as we asked a lot of thorough and analytical questions and expected responses to all of them. You two never failed to deliver. The organization and execution of our condo shopping trip in January was excellent and the fact that you two devoted 2 full days to us, around our schedule, to get this deal done was key to our success. The selection of properties that Laurel planned out, including a few places above and below our target zone helped us to refine our interests. We truly appreciated your interest in our success. This could easily have been very stressful for us, and yet, it wasn’t. Thank you very much.
As a side note, when we walked into the Coldwell Banker office randomly with no appointment in November had we not found your office staff patient and accommodating from the start we would have simply walked on to the next agency. Your staff deserves special mention for getting us interested in the agency to begin with.
We will give you some advance notice before we make our first trip down so that we can plan to get together for lunch or dinner. We are tentatively planning on somewhere in the last 2 weeks of May, as soon as our son gets out of school for the summer.
