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

Hot but manageable. The rainy seasons last for several months. - Aug 20, 2017
It is never cold here. There are two main seasons, rainy and dry. The rainy season is divided into two sections as well, starting off with a month or two of heavy rains in the morning, then clear skies for the afternoon. This is followed by a few months where it rains pretty consistently throughout the day. The rainy season ends with the "soft rain" season, where the rain comes and goes throughout the day with sunshine in-between. It cools off during the rainy season, and the nights are very pleasant during this time. - Sep 7, 2014
Thanks to its coastal and equatorial location, EGís temperatures vary only a few degrees throughout the year. Daily highs range from 85 to 90 degrees F. The temperature itself is moderate if you donít include the humidity, which makes it very sticky even in the evenings. In any event, itís better than July/August in Washington, D.C. In the rainy season it can be in the high 70s and quite nice with an evening breeze. - Jun 15, 2012
