While many believe that the rainy season in Costa Rica is the wrong time to visit, we’re here to tell you all the wonderful reasons why you should consider a rainy season vacation!
Costa Rica during the rainy season is green and lush! While you will see plenty of green during the dry season, the rainy season provides the trees and plants to thrive.
You also will see the sun! Some think that rainy season means rain all day and no sun. However, usually it will rain during the night and be sunny during the day. Always bring rain gear, an umbrella and a plastic bag for your electronics because you never know when an afternoon thunderstorm will roll in.
The rainy season also means less tourism and lower prices. You’ll likely find that hotels have a high season price and a low season price. The rainy season will give you more for your budget. Towns and cities will be less busy and more enjoyable. Overall, it will be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Don’t rule it out as a great time to travel and visit Costa Rica!
Spending the holidays in the tropics can be the perfect time to escape the cold and spend time relaxing on the beach. Holiday events in Costa Rica may not be your typical snowy white Christmas, but here at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort we are excited to offer our “White Sand Christmas Dinner.” Our Christmas event includes a special traditional Costa Rican buffet dinner, professional guitarist and beach bonfire. A fun way to spend the holiday with your loved ones!
New Year’s Eve in Montezuma is a lot of fun. The town is hopping with people looking to enjoy the sun and sand to ring in the new year. Here at Ylang Ylang, our New Year’s Eve party includes a buffet dinner, live entertainment, fireworks, and a beach bonfire. Celebrate 2016 with friends and family at our fun and exciting party!
One of the most desirable amenities at Ylang Ylang is our wonderful tropical swimming pool. Some days, the ocean is too rough for swimming or the beach and sand are too hot. This is a perfect time to lounge in the shade or sun on one of our pool chairs or hammocks. The pool is refreshing and perfect for a cool dip. You can also swim up and under our small waterfalls at one end of the pool. When you are tired out after a long day of activities or adventuring, relax with a nice cool down swim and sit by the pool!
The Ylang Ylang property has some incredibly gorgeous gardens. One of the owners, Patricia, has spent many years creating these beautiful gardens. Once a week, Patricia offers a free garden tour in Montezuma to our guests. She walks them around the property, pointing out different trees, plants and flowers and gives them a brief history of this property and Ylang Ylang. She also brings along some fruit samples that grow on our trees. This is a fun way to get to know Patricia and the history of Ylang Ylang!
