Climate, Conditions, and Packing Tips for Each of the Nayara Resorts

Climate, Conditions, and Packing Tips for Each of the Nayara Resorts

Wandering under the canopy of the Arenal Rainforest as birds flit by in the trees. Hiking the mountainsides of Easter Island, and gazing upon the ancient Moai sites as the sun sets over these mysterious relics. Paddling through the “Galapagos of the Caribbean” under a clear blue sky. Gazing up under the shockingly clear Atacama desert sky to see the stars like you’ve never seen them before. It’s easy to imagine yourself in these places, some of the world’s most fascinating and exotic destinations, but being prepared for the climate and conditions can be the difference between a great trip and one that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. 

In this article, we’ll take a look at the climate and conditions at each of the Nayara Resorts destinations — Easter Island, Bocas del Toro, the Atacama Desert, and the Arenal Rainforest — and offer some packing tips to get you started.

Notable Features of the Easter Island Climate

As you can see above, Easter Island’s average temperatures reach their highest during the Southern Hemisphere’s summer months (January, February, and March) and their lowest during August, but throughout the year, the climate is temperate and pleasant, with very little variation between high and low temperatures. 

And while the daily chance of rainfall does pick up slightly during the stretch between April, May, and June, these are typically brief showers that pass quickly, leaving the majority of the day dry. 


What Should I Pack for My Trip to Easter Island?

Easter Island offers a blend of temperate and tropical climates depending on the day, so it can be helpful to bring clothes for both warmer temperatures (in the high 70s/low 80s) as well as a light jacket or pants for comfort in the evenings. We particularly recommend packing for warm weather if you’re visiting in the Southern Hemisphere’s summer, and preparing for slightly cooler temperatures if you’re visiting during Easter Island’s cooler months.

Notable Features of the Climate in Bocas del Toro

Thanks to Bocas del Toro’s location on the equator, temperatures are essentially the same all year round, with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the low-70s. So no matter the time of year you choose to visit your private island paradise, you can be guaranteed you’ll have weather perfect for swimming, basking in the sun, and enjoying everything this region has to offer. 

In terms of precipitation, there is slightly elevated rainfall in the latter portions of the year, but in Bocas del Toro the rains tend to come in short bursts, with sunny conditions throughout the day and scattered showers that are beautiful to watch from the porch of your overwater private villa. 


What Should I Pack for My Trip to Bocas del Toro?

Planning for the tropics won’t lead you wrong on your trip to Bocas del Toro, so make sure to pack swimsuits, warm-weather clothing, and trekking shoes if you want to hike other islands of the archipelago, as well as sunblock. Bringing a light raincoat to carry in your backpack for sporadic showers is another smart option, and you can rest assured that we’ll have bug protection handled both when you’re on the shores of Nayara Bocas del Toro as well as on any excursions. 

What is the Weather Like in the Atacama Desert?

Notable Features of the Climate in Alto Atacama

Alto Atacama is the driest desert in the world, and even these climate readings from the nearby San Pedro de Atacama don’t quite capture exactly how little rainfall touches the region (which is functionally zero). 

The key climate consideration when visiting is the presence of both high and low temperatures throughout the year. Despite average high temperatures ranging in the low 80s, these numbers can spike considerably when you’re out in the sun or trekking in the desert, and drop very quickly after the sun sets, even down to near-freezing temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere’s winter months. 


What Should I Pack for My Trip to the Atacama Desert?

When you’re planning a trip to Alto Atacama, it’s best to cover both high and low temperatures, with certain clothes set out for daytime trekking and excursions, and cold-weather clothes for spending time around the resort or stargazing. There are also certain excursions that require more robust gear, which we lay out on page 3 of our tour book, and regardless of your chosen excursions bringing a swimsuit is always a good idea to enjoy the pool in the Nayara Oasis. 


What is the Weather Like in Arenal?

Notable Features of the Climate in Arenal

The Arenal rainforest is a quintessential tropical rainforest, with high temperatures throughout the year and moderate sustained rainfall, except for in January, February, and March, which comprise the region’s dry season. Like in Bocas del Toro, rainfall throughout the year usually comes in short bursts, and activities typically continue unaffected. After all, in the rainforest, sometimes getting an afternoon shower is part of life. 


What Should I Pack for My Trip to Arenal?

For your trip to Arenal, we recommend moisture-wicking clothes suited for tropical climates. Even on days without rain, under the canopy there can be mist and humidity, so having clothes suited to these conditions (as well as a light rain jacket to keep in a backpack) will help you enjoy your time in Arenal to the fullest. And don’t forget to bring swimwear for lounging by the pool, as well as clothes suited to trekking through the rainforest if you’re inclined to join us on forest walks and similar expeditions!
