Best Time to Visit Central America's Beaches
If you’re looking for a Central American beach break, it’s generally best to look at the distinct weather patterns of the destination you’re interested in. However, generally speaking, the best time to visit is during the dry season from December to April.
It’s also worth considering that there are changes in weather between the Caribbean coast and Pacific coast. For example, the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica experiences rain throughout the year, whereas its Pacific Coast is more affected by the seasons – with heavier showers in the rainy season from May to December.
Likewise, Mexico experiences hurricane season from September to November on its Caribbean coast. This usually brings high winds and occasional storms, therefore its’s best to visit Playa del Carmen and Cancun during the dry season from December to April.
