When to go
The tourist season runs from December to April. Nicaragua has a topical climate with two seasons, the dry season (December-April) and rainy (May-November). Though the temperature is fairly consistent throughout the year, the rainy season can see torrential downpours.
In nearly all Nicaragua, April and May are the hottest, driest months. December and January are the coolest months and easily comprise the most refreshing and greenest time to visit Nicaragua. September and October are Hurricane Season in the Caribbean and the rainiest months in Nicaragua.
