There is a spot known as Crocodile bridge on the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica.  We stopped to walk out onto the bridge and look down at the crocs.  When we got out of the van it was bright and sunny.  Part way across the bridge, a major rainstorm hit.  We saw it literally coming towards us like a big sheet of water.  There was no possible way to escape so we just got completely soaked.  Fortunately it was a warm rain! 

We went in low season - late September is supposedly the height of the rainy season.  But, we were very lucky.  We only got caught out in the rain twice the entire trip.  Once was the crocodile bridge...which will always remain a hilarious memory for me and a trip highlight.
