The climate of Puntarenas (Costa Rica)
Puntarenas is located on the west coast of Costa Rica on the Gulf of Nicoya which flows into the Pacific Ocean. Puntarenas is located in the Puntarenas province of which it also is the capital. Just outside the city Caldera port can be found, the most important port of the country. Puntarenas attracts many tourists because of its beaches on the Pacific Ocean. Many of these tourists have visited the interior first and come here to relax. A ferry sails to the Nicoya peninsula from here. Puntarenas has a tropical savannah climate with a distinct dry period and a distinct wet period. Because Puntarenas is situated on the leeward side it may get warmer here than in other coastal places. However, this only happens occasionally. The rainy season is from May till October with extremely high precipitation figures during some months. Please, bear in mind that humidity figures may be very high during the rainy season. However, when the wind comes from the sea this may turn out better than expected.
