Best time to visit Nicaragua

The weather in Nicaragua is generally broken down into a dry season (December – April) and a wet season (May – November). Temperatures range from warm to hot throughout the year. The dry season is the most popular time to visit Nicaragua. Should you choose to book a trip during this time, be prepared for price increases for popular tourist spots. You’ll additionally have to book your accommodation well in advance to ensure you get an offer that suits you best. For a more relaxing holiday experience, visit this Central American nation during November, which sits just ahead of the popular tourist period between December and April. The rain volume begins to drop around this time, yet still lingers to offer cool weather conditions and a green countryside. For hikers, this is the best time to explore Nicaragua’s scenic landscapes.
