When Is the Best Time 

This place is best to visit in the low season as you are nearly alone then.
Even in the peak season (dry season Dec. to April) not overcrowded due to the remote location.
During the rainy season (May/June until October) only few tourist are heading to this place.
Best months are May and June. September and October higher chance for hurricanes; keep in mind if you stay at the coastal area.

All the photos are beautiful but that one looking out over the tops of the trees, just stunning! It's always good to learn about these places that haven't become tourist traps. Thank you for the extra information as well about it becoming a World Heritage Site.
