Nicaragua can be generally divided into two seasons: rainy and dry. The rainy season runs from May through November, with October having the chance to be a full wash out. The rainy season is also when the waves are the best as the waves there work best with swells from the southern hemisphere. The dry season runs from December through April, with March and April being the hottest and the least productive in terms of swell. For the most part, at least something can be found to surf year-round in Nicaragua, though January through March are the worst when it comes to surfing.
Flights are made into Managua through Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport. As noted above, transportation to and from the airport is included as part of the all-inclusive package.
