Yes July is the rainy or "green season" but the height of rainy season on the Pacific coast is September-October. There is usually a 2-week period in July called "little summer" when there is little rain.
Even if you miss this window I would nit hesitate to visit in July. You could be unlucky and hit rainy weather, but remember that a little rain is no big deal in the rainforest.
The above info about the monsoon type of rainy season in July is just plain wrong!! Yes, there is a rainy season in Costa Rica. And it does rain.
Otherwise there would be no rain forest to enjoy. But I have not heard nor experienced anything like a monsoon type of weather. Been there twice in August, and once in June, and it rained, yet usually in the afternoons. Using a shared shuttle van transfer is best compromise between efficiency and costs, for 2 persons.
