Rain season will soon be in full swing and the weather has already shifted for us here on the coast. The overcast sky and ocean breeze is a welcome relief from the super hot dry season we’ve had this year. As soon as the first rains come the animals are everywhere. Our property is full of lush bushes and mature trees so we get lots of wildlife visiting daily. Monkeys, toucans, parrots, mot mots, armadillos, white-nosed coatis, lizards, it’s like the jungle was sleeping and it just woke up. This is my absolute favorite time of year in Costa Rica. All of the pictures below were taken in our yard, except the flower which was just up the road.
