End of January, first part of February is really nice and our favorite. Temperature during the day is about 80 and sunny all the time! If you like it hotter than that,go a month or two later.

I always say the last two weeks of Oct and the 1st two of Nov.

Incredibly green and still low season.

We have always enjoyed late October, as JR said everything is lush and green being it is right after the rainy season.

Nice and warm, prices are a bit lower and it is not nearly as crowded as the high season.

We have been going in late October since 2001. As stated a great time. We also like late April. Same weather but area is not lush after the dry winter.

When I've been the months between Thanksgiving and Easter I have had nearly perfect weather every trip.

Just don't go in the summertime.

I see absolutely no reason to not come here in the summer, it happens to be my very favorite time.

I'd like to add... I've been down in June the past 3 years and would not have called it "scorching hot" even then. It was still perfectly pleasant for pool and ocean activities.
