Best Time to Book a Flight to San Ignacio

San Ignacio has what is called a tropical wet and dry climate, meaning temperatures are high year-round, but there are distinct wet and dry seasons. Unfortunately, the rainy season is a lot longer than the dry season, generally starting in May and ending in January. September and October are usually the wettest months of the year, so avoid visiting in the fall if rain is a concern. From February to April, there is some precipitation, but these months are much drier than the rest of the year.

If the rain doesn't bother you and you're just looking for the best deal, check out Skyscanner's cheapest month search tool. Instead of choosing specific travel dates when searching for flights, choose 'Whole month', then select 'Cheapest month'. Skyscanner will search flights to San Ignacio across the entire year and show you the cheapest month to fly.
