Jaco Weather – surprise rainstorm

Today in Jaco weather we have a surprise rainstorm. It is November 27th, almost high season, and by this time of year, we usually have an occasional intense hour or two long storm around dusk one to four times a week, but right now – at 4 in the afternoon – it’s been raining pretty hard for a couple hours. So if you come in late November, you can still experience the tail end of our impressive rains, but we had a lovely morning and its been nice and cool, around 76 degrees F. The last two days it was sunny all day and started to get pretty hot. Normally around this time of year, it starts to get pretty hot downtown, although its always fairly comfortable a mile away in the jungle at the base of the mountain.
We have an extensive discussion of weather and climate in Jaco Costa Rica on our site here.

Jaco weather – La Nina/El Nino

Weather in Jaco Costa Rica is influenced by La Nina and El Nino. The past two rainy seasons have been affected by the el nino/la nina effect. This is caused by a cyclical warming of certain ocean currents that substantially changes weather patterns in many regions of the world. In our area, that means a whole lotta rain! On average, these two years saw an increase of 50% in our annual rainfall. Usually rainy season[green] season, days begin sunny and bright, gradually turning overcast as the afternoon progresses. Around 4:30 or so, the skies open up for an hour or so, and that’s usually it for the evening. During the affected years, the chance of the rain going all night is much more likely. Being that this region is a rainforest to begin with…. that’s saying something!!! Our boutique hotel in Jaco is no exception.

The end of the year, December 15th or so, is the traditional ending of the green season. It was also the tail end of the la nina year. The rains kept coming and coming and coming. We almost were forced to cancel an outdoor Max Creek concert at the end of January. This is over a month after the rains should have ended. Fortunately, the band was well protected on stage and didn’t mind. The fans had traveled thousands of miles to see their heroes… and didn’t mind either. They danced the night away in a tropical downpour. In fact, it rained so late into the dry season, that the mango trees at the resort didn’t blossom. No flower, no fruit. What were usually trees straining from the weight of their load, were strangely empty. La nina is even harder to deal with than her poorly behaved brother! The one thing I will say about the problem children, the rains bring out the lush green, tropical look that people love. This time of year always enhances the incredible variety of plant life that people envision when they think of Costa Rica.

While we are looking forward to a sunny and dry high season, right now, Docelunas Hotel in Jaco never looked better!
