Rain Season Activities in Mal Pais / Santa Teresa
The green season is one of the best times of the year to visit the Southern Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
The busiest time of the year in Costa Rica for tourism starts in December and ends in the middle of April. This is also the dry season, or what the locals call summer. It is not very likely that you will see rain during this season but that is not to say that it is impossible. For a handful of travelers who visit from a northern hemisphere, the warm dry sunny days are a nice welcome when they sprawl out on the beaches. Quite a change from the cold rainy winter they just left behind.
After the hustle and bustle of the busy season things began to change in Santa Teresa. The rains starts to come and the jungle begins to come alive. This is one of the best times to visit the area and take part of some of the fun activities in the area.
Activities in Mal Pais / Santa Teresa
SUP Tours in Mal Pais / Santa TeresaAnother good things about the rain season, also known as the green season, is that waves from the southern hemisphere start creeping in around the end of April. This lights up some of the reef breaks that normally sit dormant during the dry season. If the waves get flat, which might happen for a day or two during this time, we like to go Paddle Boarding with Andy over at Freedom Riding in Mal Pais.
An SUP tour is a great way to get exercise and see the coastline from a different perspective. Andy has a great collection of rental boards for all kinds of conditions. He also is a qualified instructor and tour guide having spent over twenty years in the area. Contact Us is you would like to find out more.
Horseback Riding Mal Pais / Santa TeresaWhen the waves get to big, or out of control for surfing or taking out an SUP, it is nice to enjoy some of the amazing countryside around the Mal Pais / Santa Teresa area. Some people like to explore the area on an ATV, and others like to go a little more natural and hike in Cabo Blanco National park, the choice is really up to you. There are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy the amazing beaches and jungles but one of our favorite ways to explore the area is by horseback.
Horseback riding tours during the rain season are a great way to spend and afternoon and enjoy the areas natural surroundings. Contact Us if you would like more information about Horse Tours in Santa Teresa and Mal Pais.
