Divers planning their visit for a diving holiday often ask us when the best time to dive in Playas del Coco, Guanacaste. Our favourite time of the year is half May until end November. Overall, our location offers excellent year-round diving opportunities but the Pacific Coast has unique geographical conditions that change the diving conditions from day to day, and in our experience May to November are the best months. Also the weather is less dry and hot so everything is beautifull and green. On top of that, these months are a quiet time of the year in terms of visitors so you can get great deals on accomodation, car rental and tours. Generally our water temperature range from 23 – 28 Celsius throughout the year so a 3 - 5 mm wetsuit is sufficient to keep you comfortably warm under water. In Costa Rica the seasons are divided between the rainy season (which runs from May to November) and the dry season (which runs November to April). But note that the name "rainy season" is somewhat misleading as Guanacaste is one of the driest provinces of Costa Rica and is far less rainy then the other states. But if you plan to come outside the suggested period (May - November) then we could say that the dry or wet season do not affect our diving conditions. So any time of the year is great to come diving with us ! 


Whether you're an avid scuba enthusiast or a novice looking to embark on your first underwater adventure, diving in Playas del Coco, promises an unforgettable journey into the depths of the Pacific Ocean. The diverse marine life, schools of tropical fish, magnificent sharks and rays, the stunning underwater topography, create a captivating and exhilarating experience like no other.
