In Liberia, as in the rest of Costa Rica, there are essentially two seasons - the "dry" season and the "wet" season. The dry season runs from November - April, when the temperature is high and very little precipitation, if any, is experienced. The wet season runs from May to October where it often rains in the entire country. However, Liberia is considered to be one of the drier cities in the province of Guanacaste, which experiences much less precipitation than the rest of country. Even in wet seasons, Liberia weatheris quite dry in comparison to the rest of Costa Rica. If weather is a concern as a traveler, the best time to visit this city would be towards the start of the dry season where the climate is only beginning to get warm, and precipitation from the wet season has decreased. The dry season can get quite hot and sometimes become uncomfortable for visitors who are not accustomed to such dry heat.
