Anytime possible. In the dry season from May to November, it rarely rains in the mountains and clear visibility is likely at destinations. Rain must always be expected in the mountain jungle and in the Mayo valley. In the rainy season from December to April, with less tourist traffic, you will find a lusher and fresher flora. This is also the time when most orchids bloom.
