Nicaragua in June / JulyDear all,
I have the intention the visit Nicaragua at the end of June / early July, but don't really know what to expect.
All right, this is the beginning of the rainy season, but is it still possible to spend some time at the beaches without having rainshowers every half an hour ?
Is the climate at time time of the year comparable with e.g. the Dominican Republic and Colombia's North Coast (Cartagena, Santa Marta, ...) ?
I would really appreciate your feedback !

4Actually there will be many days when Granada will seem like a spring day compared to Chicago's oppressive heat/humidity. It also depends which area you are in as elevation plays a major part in the weather.

5Real rain usually starts in about October. Sometimes it is very localized. I was in Bluefields for about a week in June and it poured. Left in the pouring rain for Corn Island and it was beautiful. No real rain, just a shower or two. You could see the rain and lightening off in the distance toward the mainland but it never came here. If it's too rainy for you somewhere, just move on to the next destination. It will be hot if you're in the lowlands.

8We seldom have all day rains, but then again, the weather has been unpredictable for 2 years here. Last year, we had an unusually dry rainy season. We are currently in a drought..waiting impatiently for the rains to begin. They should begin very soon because the parrots have returned and are chattering up a storm.
June and July normally have some rain, but not all day rains. There will be downpours that last for less than 30 minutes, then the skies will clear. The end of May and June are very humid. It's wicked hot here now..dry and dusty. Lake Nicaragua is at record lows. The ferries are having a difficult time passing to the mainland from Ometepe Island. But, the humidity is building. I work up a sweat just hanging my clothes out to dry. When the rains start, it will feel hotter because of the humidity.
Like Dolly says, September and October we have the heaviest rains and wild thunder and lightening storms. The rain shouldn't affect you much in your travels in June and July.

12Well I can only report on Corn Island but most of my gambling friends are expecting weather updates from Hell at some point in the future. Currently overcast, warm, but not so bad. Last night I slept with a light blanket and almost went to look another.
Rain soon come, but it is DRY right now, possibly as dry as I have seen. I have often seen less than 1 inch of rain in April, that is not unusual.
July rains tend to be intense and short lived. November you can see week (or month) long storms that will make you wish you packed more books.
Truth is Timmy don't know nothing about the Islands, but is a Nicaragua expert (at least in his own mind).
Oh Yeah he is also scared of MGA, don't get him started on that.

13i recently visited mga for about my 10th time and had absolutely no problems with taxis or what whatever. but will admit i have never visited corn islands, so know nothing about them and refuse to comment on a place that i have never been to.
but i have been to nicaragua last june and july, the northern part along the border with honduras, remember it being rainy but not all day long.
