Best Time to Visit Bonito
Any time would be a good time to plan a trip to Bonito. During the rainy season from October to March, when temperatures easily clear 30 ºC (86 ºF), the landscape shines in fresh green and the rivers are filled with a lot of water. However, the rainfall can be very heavy, although it usually clears up quickly. This would not be the ideal time for snorkeling or visiting the blue grotto as the rain washes sediments into the water, tarnishing its crystal clear transparency.
In the middle of the dry season from June to mid-September it rains very rarely with cooler temperatures around 24 ºC (75 ºF). The rivers still carry enough water and you can snorkel in the clear streams and natural pools at your leisure.
