Where to go when - our guide to Honduras

Roatan Bay

The weather in Honduras is wide and varied

A friendly yet little-visited destination, Honduras is the second largest country in Central America and boasts many highlights. From mountainous jungle scenery to archaeological treasures, Caribbean coastline to tropical islands, travel in Honduras is possible year round. However, the dry season between December and April is generally considered the best time to visit, particularly if you wish to see the ruins at Copán. April also sees the start of Easter festivities for Semana Santa as well as the Punta Gorda festival which commemorates the arrival of the Garifuna communities with live music and dancing. From April pods of whale sharks can be spotted around the Bay Islands until September.

Despite being a small country, the dramatic mountainous landscapes mean weather conditions vary between regions and therefore some parts of the country are a few months ‘late’ to keep up with the conventional wet and dry seasons. Generally speaking May through November is the wet season and it is hotter and more humid with frequent afternoon downpours. As the season moves on rainfall increases and there is a low threat of tropical storms and hurricanes and humidity making it feel much hotter than it really is. If you are heading to the Bay Islands the water is at its clearest from March to September making it perfect for spotting the abundant marine life whilst snorkelling and scuba diving. November to July is best for Bird Watching, especially around the pristine tropical forest of Pico Bonito National Park.
