What is the best time of year to visit Sabalo Lodge?

Depending on the year, Costa Rica’s dry season runs from December to April. From May to August the weather is quite pleasant. It usually rains for brief periods in the late afternoons only, leaving most of the day free for exploring and enjoying the many activities on offer. September to November is the rainy season, meaning a cooler and wetter climate. Travel here is usually not recommended during this season, though it can be a good time of year for sightseers with a keen interest in exotic plants, animals and marine life.  Or for those who just want to escape into a secluded, peaceful world.

Are vaccinations necessary during my stay in Costa Rica?

No special vaccinations are required for visitors to Costa Rica. However, it is strongly recommended to visit a travel clinic to bring your current vaccinations up to date before leaving.

Are there mosquitoes?

Guests aren’t normally bothered by mosquitoes at the Sabalo Lodge site. The likelihood of getting bitten is greater during the rainy season. Mosquitoes are more likely to come out in the evening, so keep insect-repellent handy and be sure to wear long-sleeved shirts and pants after sunset.
