We are staying at a private beach rental in Carate this Christmas. i have been trying to undrstand the tide charts as we can only swim and boogie board safely at low tide in order to avoid bull sharks and rip tides. i have consulted a few tide charts but have found conflicting information and the owner of our rental is unable to assist. i do not want to choose a guided tour on a day when we should stay at our property. I would be so grateful to anyone who can assist.
This is what I found for my dates on CR Surf
Sat Dec. 24 low tide at 5:13 and 17;21 and high tide at 11:26 and 23:47
Sun Dec 25 low tide at 6:08 and 18:15 and high tide at 12:22
Mon Dec 26 low tide at 6:57 and 19:03 and high tide at 13;11
Tues Dec 27 low tide at 7:40 and 19;47 and high tide at 13:56
Wed Dec 28 low tide at 8:20 and 20:29 and high tide at 14:37
thurs Dec 29 low tide at 8:58 and 21:09 and high tide at 15:16
Fri Dec 30 low tide at 9:35
I found the same times on Ray and Sue’s Costa Rica Guide site but the high and low tides were reversed! For example for Saturday Dec 24 they indicate that high tide is at 5:13 a.m. and low tide at 11:26 a.m.
Please let me know which one to use . Also how much time to we have on either side of the time. For example if it is low tide at 10:am at what time is it safe to get in the water and what time should we be out?
Do these times also work for the Pejiperritol lagoon? This will help us understand which days and times to reserve the guide and kayaks for the lagoon.
thank you so much for all who reply!
