Rainy Season

When the rainy season starts and ends all depends on where you are in Honduras. The inland part of Honduras tends to start getting rain in May and it lasts until November. The coastal areas of Honduras, including the Bay Islands, start getting rain around September and it usually lasts until January.

Don’t be put off too much by the rainy season, it isn’t as bad as some of the other countries in Central America. The rainy season is much like any other coastal city. The mornings are bright and clear while the late afternoon brings a few hours of showers. If you don’t mind the rain, this time of year can be great to visit if you are on a budget. Prices for almost everything go down during the rainy season.




While the rainy season brings plenty of rain, it rarely brings anything else in the way storms. Hurricanes are extremely uncommon in the area, but have been know to happen. The rain storms here are very calm and rarely result in extreme thunderstorms. These storms are usually nothing more than heavy downpours.


The temperatures in Honduras are very comfortable and rarely change throughout the year. The average temperature depends on where you are at. Coastal cities will have a warmer temperatures, while inland cities will be much cooler.

Around the coastlines of Honduras you can expect temperatures of around 70 and 80 degrees. Keep in mind that this temperature does not include the intense humidity factor. Humidity here will hit you like a brick wall and will take some time to get used to. Expect the humidity to make that 80 degress feel more like a 100 and cause you to sweat bullets.

The Bay Island area temperatures usually stay in the 80 degrees range.

Inland, temperatures drop, but not by much. The inland city of San Pedro Sula can easily reach 90 degrees during the summer. Go even furthen inland and temperatures drop a little bit. Tegucigalpa is often about 10 degrees cooler than San Pedro Sula.
