Best time to visit Honduras

The dry season (February to June) is the most popular time to visit Honduras, due to better opportunities to spot the marine wildlife of the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. During this period, crowd levels will be at their highest, and the same goes for the price of accommodation. To get favourable weather conditions, fewer crowds and cheaper hotel rates, visit Honduras between May and early June. The period around early June sits just ahead of the peak of the wet season (late-June to November), ensuring that the number of tourists will decrease. This will give you the welcome opportunity to discover the beautiful country of Honduras at your own pace!
