Sunrise and sunset in Nicaragua

Sunrise today: 5:33 h
Sunset today: 17:40 h
(Times for Managua)

Sunrise and sunset in Nicaragua do not differ significantly throughout the year. The reason for this is the proximity to the equator. Thus, the sun swings north in the middle of the year and south at the turn of the year, without moving too far away. In countries like Canada or Norway, however, the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:50 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Managua lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Managua rises at 5:33. The early sunset at 17:40 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Nicaragua?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Nicaragua is Corn Island in the region of Atlántico Sur. There, the sun rises at 5:20 am and sets at 5:28 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Jiquilillo (Chinandega) at 5:45 pm.


Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Managua lies on the 12th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Nicaragua it only lasts an average of 24 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Managua, while in December it's 24 minutes.
