However, if you want to experience the resort’s peak surfing season, you’ll need to act fast.

Green season means prime surfing time at Kalon Surf Resort

True surfers know the green or rainy season in Costa Rica is the best time to ride the waves. The months of May through October make up this peak surfing season. During these months, daytime highs remain a balmy 86º Fahrenheit, whether it’s rain or shine.

The southwest swells that constantly roll in from the South Pacific are the primary reason to schedule your surf trip to Costa Rica during the green season. Swells of four feet or more with glassy conditions are common along the Pacific coast during these months. If you are hoping to catch large waves off the coast of Costa Rica, this is the time!

In addition to larger waves, the green season in Costa Rica also features fewer tourists. Most people in North America plan vacations to cooler climates during the summer months. You’ll save money and avoid crowds if you visit Costa Rica in the off-season.

Finally, as you venture inland to explore Costa Rica’s lovely landscape, you’ll understand why this time of year is known as the green season. Vivid green in every shade adorns the countryside, the rainforest, and the coast.
