Three words: pure sunset magic.
If you're following me onInstagram (@sambatothesea) and the IG algorithm isn't hiding my posts from ya, then you've probably noticed that the sunsets this past week in Costa Rica have been sooooooooooo good! I'm talking about magical sunsets back-to-back-to-back-to-back...yes, as in multiple days in a row of out this world, jaw dropping sunsets.
And you want to know the "hard" part in all of this? This week's sunsets are blending together in my head as one sunset highlight reel...OK, I’m really not complaining one bit! #sorrynotsorry because someone has to chase these sunset beauties!
So with all these back-to-back stunning sunsets, you may be wondering if there's a stimulant for these beauties. Two words: rainy season. Back in June, I shared with you what rainy season in Costa Rica really means and what to expect expect weather wise...BUT, I kinda held out on ya. My bad!
You see, rainy season in Costa Rica is always on Pura Vida time. Or in other words, it is almost impossible to predict the rain a couple days out, nonetheless a couple hours before a planned activity!! So here is the real insider insight to rainy season here in Costa Rica:
As always, muchas gracias Mother Nature for your sunset shows — but you sure are giving me one heck of a hard time deciding which sunset photos to post first because they ALL are insanely beautiful!!

Rainy Season > Dry Season
Yes, I said it!
I prefer Rainy Season in Costa Rica over Dry Season...and if you love breathtaking sunsets as much as I do, then you will too!
(How about that for some rhyming... 😉😂)
So why is Rainy Season better than Dry Season in Costa Rica?
Because Rainy Season = magical sunset season in Costa Rica!
In other words, rain squalls + clouds set the stage for dramatic sunsets just like this...
