Lapa Rios Eco-lodge, and the Osa Peninsula in general, is characterized by warm, breezy days, with highs of 82 - 92 degrees, lows 75 - 85. Because of afternoon clouds, August through November are cooler months, with highs in the 70s. Temperatures during January through April are in the mid-80s. From the middle of December to the end of April it is rare that it will rain at all. This is the summer season here and excellent sunny weather can be guaranteed. The "green season", usually from May to November, is probably the best time to experience a true rain forest. All outdoor activities are still offered, as the rain is very warm and actually quite pleasant. It generally will rain three to four times per week, usually in the late afternoon and evening.
The Lapa Rios experience is one of full immersion into the remote rainforest of the Osa Peninsula. There are no phones and internet connections available for guests in the rooms or at the reception. You can use a computer or a phone at the Lapa Rios reservations office in Puerto Jimenez. However, recently, the cellular phone coverage by the local telecommunications provider has improved to the point that now, most cellular phones work and if you bring your own smart phone, you will be able to connect to the internet. We recommend you leave your phone turned off to really experience the “decompression” and relaxation of being away from it all.
