Similar to the rest of Costa Rica, Alajuela hast only two different seasons across the year, a rainy one and a dry one. During the rainy season that extends from May until October, flowers grow and bloom, as the rain pours from heaven feeding and calming the thirst of the ground below us, making it fertile so it can last through the year.  There is no discomfort in a little rain; it is just the necessary to keep us going through the season until the dry season kicks in.

The Dry season, well, that’s a whole different story. Sunny days, warm clear nights, the fields turn brown as the grass starts do dry up. The crops start to be gathered as the ever moving Alajuela prepares itself for another year, another cycle, another round.
