Mountainous regions and any area above sea level may experience cooler temperatures and lower humidity. Nicaragua receives different amounts of rainfall in different regions—in the

Nicaragua is prone to flooding during the rainy season, especially in the east of the country. The coast can receive tropical storms and hurricanes, especially from November through March.
