ASKED QUESTIONS

 

1. COUNTRY

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT?

The climate is tropical like most of Central America. The year is split between summer (Dec-Apr) and winter (May-Nov), though the temperature is consistent throughout the year, ranging from 12°-35°C. The main seasonal difference involves rainfall. The rainy season falls between May and October. Every season has its perks. The dry season makes for easy traveling as the roads are in great condition and the rivers do not flood, but it can be dusty and the waves are not as consistent. The wet season is beautifully green and the waves are great. Aside from September and October you really can’t go wrong!

Public holidays include New Year’s Day (Jan 1) and the easter Week (Thurs, Fri, and Sat before Easter Sunday). Labor Day (May 1), Christmas Day (Dec 25), Liberation Day (July 19) and Día de los Muertos (Nov 2), or called Day of the Dead, which is the Latin American version of All Souls’ Day.
