Nicaragua's climate is tropical, although it is cooler in the highlands. Humidity is generally high and the average temperature is 78 F (27 C). The rainy season runs from May through October. There are many volcanoes in the country and earthquakes and tremors are not uncommon. Occasional hurricanes, such as Hurricane Juana in 1988, which left 300,000 people homeless, can be very destructive along the coasts.*
