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

It's hot, year round. Two rainy seasons one in the "fall" ending late October and one in the early summer - beginning in May. Even in the rainy seasons, though, there are periods of sun, it's just when the rain comes, it comes hard and fast. - Sep 28, 2017
Hot and hotter, humid and a little less humid! It is a tropical island, so you get what goes with that and what makes it so green!

It rains from May to September, more or less. However leading up to that, from March to May it is extraordinarily hot! But it is the same in most places in this region. - Mar 20, 2017
