Costa Rican Green Season is Green With Money

Share Article

The low season in Costa Rica typically sees a lot of hotels close theirs doors for October however this year it appears that many are staying open as requests and reservations flood in.

Holidays in Costa Rica, a leading UK travel agency based in San Jose has seen a recent incline in tourists towards the end of Costa Rica's green season in general (May - November). The green season had seen a decline in tourists earlier this year; however a sudden rise in visitors is expected towards the latter part of this period.

The months of September and October tend to be a particularly slow time for the Costa Rica tourism industry, and were predicted to be even quieter for 2007's green season. However this year Costa Rica Holidays has seen a significant increase in Europeans venturing to Costa Rica during this period. This looks to be in line with the fact the there has been a particularly wet summer back in Europe, and despite it being the green season here, there is still plenty of sunshine to be enjoyed at particular times of the day as Richard Bexon explains, "The weather here runs a bit like clockwork, the mornings are filled with bright sunshine and very warm temperatures, and around about mid-afternoon it rains for about 1 hour heavily and then dries up.". However remember that without this rain the country would not be so lush and the rainforests would not be rainforests. In the Northern area of Guanacaste the rainfall is minimal as this area markets 365 days of sun a year. So if you are looking for a cheaper luxury holiday with some sun then be sure to end the holiday with a stay in the Guanacaste.

The weather isn't at all an inconvenience to a holiday out here; in fact it brings to light some of the countries best features for an ultimately satisfying holiday. The green season provides a great spectacle to see an abundance of fantastic flora and fauna and an array of magnificent wildlife, not to mention the fact that this time of year is perfect for those seeking adrenaline fueled journeys by taking up some white water rafting. After the rains if you venture into the rainforest you will see poison dart frogs and a variety of other amphibians and spiders. Great packages such as the Luxury Green Season Special help cater for such attractions.

What is interesting to note is that honeymoons have seen quite a considerable rise for this time of year. This is mainly due to weddings being generally cheaper at this time of year as the wedding season draws to a close entwined with the fact that generally hotel and traveling prices are also cheaper this time year. Costa Rica Honeymoons offer customisable options to make sure that your honeymoon is a memorable one

Reports from some our partnered hotels suggest that this time of the year tends to be the period where they would shut for a month or so as the venues just weren't profitable enough to keep open. However with this increasing demand in September/October traveling, many resorts have opted to leave their doors open for forthcoming holidaymakers. "The good thing is, not only is there more choice than there ever has been before for this category, but there are still fantastic deals to be had and very reasonable rates. You can have a 2 week honeymoon or holiday in Costa Rica in 4 star plus hotels, including transport, hotels, tours and all taxes, plus airfare for just under £3,000" States Bexon.

For similar reasons as to above, last minute bookings have also seen a rise. Cheaper deals and more availability have provided a surge in tourists looking for a quick and reasonably priced holiday.
