Seasons and Weather
Nicaragua enjoys a tropical climate with two distinct seasons - the wet and the dry. Generally speaking the dry season runs from November to May bringing with it hot and humid temperatures. This is the best time to visit with plenty of outdoor activities available and is great for beach holidays along the coast. The rainy season runs between June and October, washing out roads and making travel around the country more difficult. For this reason it is Nicaragua's low season.
The highlands tend to be a lot cooler in temperature and November is a great time for trekking in these regions as the the rains bring lots of greenery. This is the shoulder tourist season in Nicaragua. The high season is between December and April with services at a premium.
