Both the dry and the “green” seasons offer much to see in Latin America. While the green season is characterized by more rain, in the rainforest environments, rain can happen in any season. And because these five countries are so close to the equator—from 7 degrees to 17 degrees north—temperatures change very little from month to month.
A variety of wildlife sightings are possible any time of year, while some occur with the changing seasons. From humpback whales and iguanas to ruby throated hummingbirds and butterflies, the wildlife ranges from the biggest to the tiniest critters in Costa Rica and Panama. In Belize and Guatemala, hear the call of jungle birds and, in the water, keep your eyes peeled for the elusive manatee. Wherever you adventure, this region is known as a migration crossroads. You never know what Mother Nature might have in store for you.
