The National Meteorological Institute of Costa Rica says that the rainy season will still arrive in the Central Valley (San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, etc) as expected (May 6 to 10), but everywhere else will be slightly ahead of schedule!
In the south Pacific, the season is expected to begin March 27 to March 31, slightly earlier than the average of April 1 to 5.

The institute is predicting 20 to 25 percent more rain than normal this year in Guanacaste (north Pacific), the Central Valley and down to Quepos (central Pacific). Other areas will see normal amounts of rainfall, the institute predicts.
