Costa Rica in June

I've read quite a lot of the old posts about CR, however, I was wondering if anyone had any info on the weather in June. Is it really that rainy in the Pac. North Coast? My wife and I are planning on going to Playa Grande (or somewhere in that area) for the first bit of the trip. We want to do some diving and to try surfing (neither of us have surfed before).

Then, we would like to head to some rivers to do some paddling. With the wife going, we would need to stay on more II-III rivers.

Anyhow, I know there have been a ton of posts on CR, but I would appreciate any extra info you could give me.

is costa still in your plans?

in june, it pretty much rains in the whole country, so levels should be up (not peak, though). also, it won't be dumping on you all day, you can count on sunny mornings to do what you like. no whitewater near the pacific NW, you'd have to move further into the country (sarapiqui or turrialba) or at least down further south. if you want to stay near the beach, the town of quepos (middle pacific) would be a good bet, with good easy/intermediate boating nearby, on the naranjo and savegre rivers. you'd also have the general river within a few hours' driving time.

there's also decent boat rental options, so you don't have to haul yours down (maybe bring skirt, pfd and helmet, and a short top). i'm a local costa rican boater, and i can help set you up here, just PM me for contact info.
