3 friends and I signed up to go snorkeling with Rich Coast. Team was absolutely amazing, super welcoming and vibes were immaculate. Fred was our guide for snorkeling and was very knowledgeable and Jorge was really friendly and laid back. The team in general were awesome - just can’t remember their names. Would recommend to anyone, professional, safe and a great time. MORE REVIEWS

Wondering about the best time for a snorkeling holiday in Guanacaste? Our favorite period is from mid-May to late November. While our location offers excellent year-round snorkeling opportunities, the Pacific Coast's unique geographical conditions create varying diving conditions from day to day. May to November stands out as the ideal time, with pleasant weather and lush green surroundings. Additionally, these months are less crowded, offering great deals on accommodation, car rentals, and tours. The surface water temperatures ranges from 26 to 31 degrees Celsius throughout the year, making a rashguard or 3 mm wetsuit sufficient for comfortable underwater exploration.


Guanacaste experiences a division between the rainy season (May to November) and the dry season (November to April), but note that Guanacaste is one of Costa Rica's driest provinces, making the distinction less pronounced. If you plan to visit outside the suggested period (May - November), rest assured that our snorkeling conditions remain unaffected, making any time of the year perfect for snorkeling with us!
