Central America Travel GuideWhen to visit Central America
Though each of the countries in Central America has a unique high and low season, all the countries follow a similar pattern of attracting the most visitors either during the winter months, school vacations, holidays, or some combination of the three. While regional temperatures stay pleasant year-round, visitors should factor in rainy seasons (usually in late summer or early fall), and along the Caribbean seaboard, hurricane season.
