Best season for this trip

Anytime possible. In the dry season from May to November, it rarely rains in the mountains and clear visibility is likely in the travel destinations. Rain is always to be expected in the mountain jungle and in the Mayo Valley. In the rainy season from December to April one finds a more lush and fresher flora with less tourist traffic. This is also when most orchids bloom.
