Where to go when - our guide to Nicaragua

Leon Nicaragua

The weather in Nicaragua is wide and varied

Having suffered years of political upheaval Nicaragua is now a peaceful destination characterised by fuming volcanoes, lakes, mountains, tropical islands, Caribbean and Pacific beaches and beautiful colonial cities steeped in culture and history. Situated well within the tropics, Nicaragua has a typical tropical climate with high temperatures all year round at low altitudes. The dry season runs from November – May with plenty of sunny days and warm sunshine; with the exception of the Caribbean coast which can experience a shower at any time. Temperatures are significantly modified by altitude and higher up it can be very cool at night. Nicaragua’s rainy season begins at the end of May but showers are generally short and confined to the afternoon or evening. From July it becomes increasingly wet and there’s a risk of tropical storms until November.
Over Easter there are celebrations throughout the country. Popular traditions include the donkey procession on Palm Sunday; a procession from all parts of Nicaragua that gathers in Granada. In late November San Juan del Sur hosts a week long beach party and surfing competition and from September to December there is a festival every Sunday in Masaya with parades and tamarindo music.
