We spent a week during the "Green Season" which is travel industry talk for "rainy season" in Paraiso near Santa Cruz. We happened upon a one-week window in late June/early July when the weather is lovely! We only had rain at night but got the advantage of seeing the countryside at its greenest!

Guyatil, Costa Rica

Not far from Santa Cruz (and the airport in Liberia), there's a tiny village known for its pottery. The dirt road of the town (basically a large circular road) is lined with little pottery stalls. The local artists are making pots in a style that dates back hundreds of years. There's a co-op (larger more modern shop in the center of the circle) that sells some of the more artistic pots. Everything is affordable and just beautiful!
