The climate of Léon (Nicaragua)
Léon, or Santiago de los Caballeros de Léon, as the town is actually
officially called lies in the north-west of Nicaragua on the river
Chiquito. Léon is a rather big town in the department of Léon, of
which it is also the capital. León lies close to the volcano
Momotombo. The old town was completely destroyed in the past due to an
eruption of Momotombo. The old ruins of Leon have been on the Unesco
world heritage list since the last century. The town has many
architectural styles, which grants the town a character of its own.
Léon has a tropical climate which is slightly influenced by its
situation near the Pacific. The climate in Léon has two periods: a wet
period and a bone-dry period. In the first months of the year there is
really not a single drop of rain, but the months after that amply
compensate for that. Due to its sheltered situation between some
volcanoes the air humidity can rise considerably on the warm, very wet
days and the word ‘damp’ gets a completely new meaning.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
information for each month of the year:
