Nicaragua Climate & Weather

Nicaragua Climate and Weather


Nicaragua has a tropical climate and is hot year round with little seasonal variation. There are two basic seasons: the wet season, from June to January, is defined by short heavy rainfalls that can occur daily (on the east coast rains can last longer into the year and the east receives more rain and often experiences flooding during the rainy season); and the dry season, from December to May, has almost no rain and it can get very dry. The rainy season doesn't rule out travel because the tropical downpours tend to be over quickly and the sun comes out soon afterwards; however, tropical storms and hurricanes are possible between July and October and some people prefer to avoid this period. Temperature fluctuations result mainly from elevation, with average temperatures differing widely between sea level and lowlands, and highlands and highland peaks. Lowland daytime temperatures average above 86°F (30°C) with as much as 84 percent humidity, and highland temperatures average above 75°F (24°C). The hottest months are March, April and May. The best time to visit Nicaragua really depends on desired activities and region, but the peak tourist season is between December and March.
