Seasons in Central America
For many the dry season between December and April is considered the best time to travel around the region with pleasant temperatures and largely clear skies. This is peak tourist season with a number of national holidays including Easter and Christmas.
The rainy season runs from April to December with hurricane season hitting the region in September and October, especially on the Caribbean coast. There's usually still plenty of sunshine during the wetter months though humidity will be at its highest. The rainy season means fewer people though the compromise is tropical storms and more mosquitoes.
Most countries in Central America have very distinct micro climates with temperatures and rainfall varying from coast to coast and as the altitude rises in the mountainous interior highlands. For more in-depth weather information, please visit the relevant country destination page on our website.
