What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Warm, tropical, and summery all year long with rainy and dry seasons. In the rainy season, heavy showers are mostly confined to late afternoons and at night, leaving hot, humid days. It can be cooler up in the mountains, so do leave all your sweaters and jackets behind. - Sep 26, 2017
It is about 88-95 Fahrenheit every day. Temps don't change much but there is a definite rainy season. - May 30, 2017
This is a sub-tropical country with a very defined rainy and dry season. Given its geography however, apart from the rainy season, it's a lot more arid than other countries in the region and given the proximity to the sea, the breezes offer respite during the dry season (which can actually be a little cool at night). Weather changes dramatically as you go into the highlands. - Sep 30, 2016
