Nicaragua in mid to end of July a bad call? (weather)« on: May 12 2009 18:05:00 »
Im have a chance to travel coming up in July and wanted to hit up Nicaragua to learn to surf. Didnt take me long to realize that July is the rainiest month of the year!
Can anyone comment on just how rainy it is? If its worth going at that time?
Anywhere else thats relatively inexpensive where I could learn to Surf?

Not all statistics say the same thing about the rainiest month. But of course July is in the rainy season and you can expect rain every day with the exception of 2 weeks in July, which is called the little summer. But even outside these 2 weeks you normally will not get more than a shower a day. But you will not get that much sun (thank God), because it will be cloudy.

That all depends on the position of the ITCZ and tropical waves coming over from the Caribbean. It really varies overall but generally speaking the chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase gradually July through September, peak late September through early November, then diminish into December.

July is in the middle of the rainy season, but not the rainiest. September and October are typically rainier with rain all day, as opposed to showers then clouds typically in July.
