Honduras as a whole is characterized by a tropical climate. However, large topographical differences provide for a subdivision into different climate zones. At the Caribbean coast there is an approximately 70 kilometres wide lowland belt. There you will find a humid tropical climate with rainfall distributed quite evenly over the whole year. Apart from the Pacific coast, the rest of the country consists of numerous mountains and high valleys. The rainy season lasts from May to October and the dry season from November to April. The annual precipitation decreases from north to south and amounts to between 1000 and 2500 mm. The temperatures are mainly influenced by the altitude. The annual mean values are between 20 degrees in the temperate higher altitudes and around 31 degrees on the Pacific.
For trips to Honduras, the rather dry and not yet too hot months of February and March are particularly recommended.
