Question by bella1: Has anyone been to Costa Rica during the Sept/Oct raining season? If yes, would you recommend it?
I’m planning my honeymoon at the end of September and I read that its the raining season in Costa Rica. I would like to know from someone who has traveled there at that time to advise if they would recommend it.

Costa Rica is rainy a good bit of the year on the coast in particular. The Pacific coast has more rain than the Caribbean during the Sept/Oct time period so you may want to plan for that coast.
Also, keep in mind the mountains are just gorgeous don’t recieve the same sort of rain as the coastline. You could visit volcanoes, craters, and coffee plantations if the weather isn’t so great on the beach. The rainforests are also something worth visiting and what difference does it make if it rains there?
My favorite place in Costa Rica is on the Caribbean, just south of Limon, called Porto Viejo. There’s a fun bit of beachy nightlife, it is pretty remote, great hiking, walking, and the way they make beans and rice with coconut milk there is enchanting. As you move south towards Panama, it is very remote and you can lie around naked on picture perfect beaches with howler monkeys as your only interlopers.
