Welcome to Low Mini-High Season

By Adam Dietrich

It’s mini-high season and that means it’s that one-month in the middle of the wet and low season where people suddenly seem to appear in Nosara again.

It probably has something to do with the fact that in Costa Rica it is school vacation time (also in Canada and the United States). Regardless, while Nosara may not be as busy now as in March, it’s still possible to get out basically every night of the week.

Below is a calendar of events for this next week starting on Friday July 13, there’s even more happening but these suggestions should help to get you started.
