Weather Underground is a great site and has the most accurate forecast data for this region, but if you check the RSS feed on their Jaco forecast you will see it is actually the weather forecast for Chacarita, which is inland and far to the south. Temperatures in Chacarita are typically lower than temperatures in Puntarenas and Jaco and rainfall is typically quite a bit higher.

Jaco weather in brief

The climate or local weather in Jaco Costa Rica is tropical, with a rainy season weather conditions in North American summer, which Costa Ricans call winter weather, and dry season weather in North American winter, which Costa Ricans call summer weather.

Temperatures can reach the mid 90's in downtown Jaco in December through March. The valley cools off quickly when you leave the downtown/beach area. Temperatures at the base of the mountains a mile from downtown can be as much as 10 degrees cooler. Under a tropical sun, the shade of the mountains and the trees make more noticeable difference than they would in a temperate climate.

In the green season, May-October, daytime highs are typically in the 80s or high 70s. In both seasons, overnight lows may dip into the high 60s.

Jaco Hotel DoceLunas has cooler weather

Downtown Jaco Costa Rica is more developed that the surrounding valley and the black sand beach, streets, parking lots, and buildings soak up the heat from the tropical sun. Daytime highs reach the mid 90s downtown because of the heat sink effect of development.

Jaco Hotel DoceLunas is one mile from the beach in the shade at the base of the largest mountain rising from the Jaco valley, Cerro Puntudo, towering over 1,000 feet above the hotel. The shade gives us our own Jaco weather.

It is much cooler here. At mid-day in dry season, it can be as much as ten degrees cooler here than in downtown Jaco even though we are only 100 feet higher. This is partly because of the mountain, partly because we have preserved the canopy throughout the hotel so the grounds are shady, dappled with sun rather than baked, and partly because we are surrounded by fields and jungle, not pavement. You will love it.

Remember Jaco gets hot - the mountain stays cool

December through April is the best season for weather for Costa Rica weddings. It is very unlikely to rain at all from January to March and December and April rain comes only around 1 in 4 days and it usually doesnt last long. No matter what, its always warm. While wedding parties mostly schedule in our dry season or May through August before the heavy rains come, some of our Costa Rica yoga retreats are scheduled during the rainiest part of the year. Our prices are somewhat lower and the warm torrential, windless downpours provide a powerful but relaxing display of the forces of nature that fits well with the contemplative nature of a yoga retreat.
