Managua Climate & Weather
Managua enjoys a tropical climate with temperatures all year round averaging between 80°F (27°C) and 90°F (32°C). There is little seasonal variation in temperature, but the hottest months, March and April, are best avoided as it can get uncomfortably humid.
The year loosely divides into a wet and dry season. Between November and April, the city tends to be dry, with little rainfall. Between May and September, it is rainy and wet. May, June, and October are the wettest months and best avoided, but tropical downpours tend to be brief and bring relief from the heat so some travellers don't mind visiting at this time.
Ideally, visitors to Managua should plan their trip for some time between November and February when the weather is pleasantly warm but not scorching. There isn't too much rainfall but the best time to visit Managua is in November and December.
Some travellers may also want to time their visits to witness the city's best festivals and biggest events, in which case Easter and early August are probably the best bets despite the oppressive heat in April and the possibility of rain in August.
