The Heart of Winter (Sort of)

It’s that time of year again in Las Catalinas, when residents of town get versions of the same question asked over and over again from friends and family elsewhere.

“So, how’s the winter treating you down there?”

As it turns out, pretty great! It’s actually in the middle of summer in Guanacaste, where the dry season spells sun pretty much all day long and being close to the coast means that you’re never too far from a refreshing dip in the ocean. The low temperature this month in Las Catalinas has been a frigid 73 degrees Fahrenheit, with average day temperatures around 84, no precipitation in sight, and a warm northeasterly breeze coming off the land to help keep everything cool and manageable.

It’s no wonder you see so many guests visiting this time of year from the frigid north, and it seems like Boston Magazine has caught on to the trick. As the US shakes off the effect of the polar vortex that hit recently, the Bostonians released their Costa Rica Travel Guide, with Las Catalinas and Santarena front and center.

Stay warm, and with Santarena’s opening in mind, make sure to Stay Light!
