Best time of year to visit Honduras

Weatherwise, the best time to visit Honduras runs from December to April. Slightly cooler temperatures and fewer rainy days make this season more favourable for sightseeing and trekking in the country. Spring offers lots of celebrations from Holy Week and Easter in March or April to La Ceiba Carnival, a Mardi-Gras style party in late May. Early summer brings the rainy season to the inland areas, but the Caribbean coast and Bay Islands still enjoy sunny days. June is a great month for spotting whale sharks off Utila island and waiting for the rain of fish with the locals. After the peak of the hurricane season in October, head to the cacao and coffee plantations to watch the harvest and to Honduras Bay Islands for baby turtles hatching.
