The best time to visit Nicaragua is between November and May. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June to November, and although Nicaragua rarely suffers, they are most likely from August to October.

The climate does differ between the drier West (Pacific) and the East (Caribbean) where there is no real dry month owing to both the rains and the trade winds.

Easter (Holy week) sees colourful religious processions throughout the country, particularly in the main towns of Leon, Granada and Managua.
