Where to go when - our guide to Pico Bonito National Park
The weather in Pico Bonito National Park is wide and varied
Pico Bonito National Park comprises pristine tropical forest and is an ideal place for wildlife spotting. The national park ranges from 60 metres above sea level all the way to 2,500 metres, so weather can vary dramatically from the hotel to the base of your excursion. The lowest reaches have a hot tropical climate all year round, ranging from 25-30oC, but the climate varies with altitude and can be refreshingly cool the higher you climb.View our Pico Bonito National Park weather guide
