Nicaragua has a very tropical climate with two distinct seasons: a wet season and a dry season. Generally, Nicaraguans refer to the dry season as summer and the wet season as winter. Nicaragua's climate is the result of its being located in a very humid area between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The rainy season in this region generally lasts from May to October while the dry season is from November to April.
Generally speaking, the dry season is the most popular visiting time in Nicaragua not only because there is less rain but also because the temperatures are nice and cool which makes for a great time on the beach. The hottest months are March, April, and May when temperatures be in the high 80s to low 90s (32°C to 34°C).
