The land of lakes and volcanoes

Nicaragua's beautiful climate conditions!

A tropical climate can be observed in the beautiful country of Nicaragua. Just as in the other Central American countries, there are two seasons: the dry and the raining season. During the dry season (January - June) there is virtually no rain and trees and plants start to dry out. Once the rains come around June, July, everything starts growing and the yellow plants and leafless trees turn green and start blossoming in a breathtaking way. In August and September it often rains once a day (insane, right???) . Fortunately, it just rains for a short period of time and these are often spectacular, tropical downpours.
