It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Nicaragua

Peak Season: December to April

Nicaragua pretty much only has two seasons, and the winter/spring dry season is not surprisingly the most popular time to visit. If possible avoid the weeks surrounding Christmas and Easter, when hotels charge the highest rates and flights book up fast.

Off Season: June to October

The “green season” has the rainiest months, but also the best hotel prices. The more touristed areas on the west coast tend to be drier than the rugged east coast.

Sweet Spot: November; May

Most hotels are still charging high season prices, but if you travel at the beginning or the end of the dry season you may be able to avoid some of the crowds.
