Why is Costa Rica so cold right now?

Pacific coast chills out fully.

A giant mass of cool, known as the Pacific Ocean, is helping bring down the air temperature of everything nearby.

While many days of no sun are not helping, during the same time sea surface temperatures have dropped all over Costa Rica's Pacific. You can feel the freshness when you walk down to the beach. As Blue Eco Blog mentioned over a month ago, La Nina has told Costa Rica to chill out. Now do you believe?

La Nina means the waters offshore of Costa Rica and the Eastern Tropical Pacific are cooler than normal. This happened last year, faded, then turned on again last month. Weather computer models are predicting the La Nina phenomenon will last at least until next year.

The conditions for here means lots of marine life and the sea is often rougher than normal. That and more rain than normal.

And the rare sight of surfers and divers in full wet suits.

La Nina Says Chill Out to Pacific Costa Rica

La Nina Says Chill Out to Pacific Costa Rica.

NOAA says its official what some have suspected; La Nina is visiting again, dropping average sea surface temperatures In Costa Rica. Pacific wet suits have already been back in heavy use for awhile and looks like you might wanna add an extra layer. And make sure your dive mask is clean because La Nina likes to bring heaps of fish and marine mammals with her.

In fact the waters around the Osa have been chock full of whales, pseudorcas, orcas, whale sharks, bait balls and more for almost two months. Looks like marine mammals Knew La Nina was here long before NOAA.  Pretty cool huh?
