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

Very temperate - pleasant, dry, warm most of the year. Summers get fairly hot, and winters are chilly but not freezing. - Nov 29, 2017
Hot from June - August (100s), cools quickly in September, and then even cooler October - March. - Nov 3, 2015
It is pretty much living hell from June-August, reaching 106 Degrees Fahrenheit. Ramadan fell during the summer months when we were here which was difficult because the majority of businesses are closed in the day and you sweat in places you didn't even know you could sweat from! People will wear boots and winter coats when it's about 60F, I would wear sandals. - Nov 26, 2014
Climate is great! Mild and sometimes rainy through the winter, gorgeous spring and fall, summer is HOT! Not a typical rainy season climate as you find in other African countries, but there is a decent amount of rain in the winter. - Jul 29, 2013
Hot summers, mild winters. Locals wear coats, boots, and gloves in December. I go out with a long-sleeved shirt and I'm comfortable! - Jun 21, 2013
Weather is great year round. Warm and dry in the summer and cool and a little more humid in the winter. It rains late September to May. The temperatures range from 40 - 100 degrees F. - Feb 3, 2012
Expected it to be hot and dry, but it ended up being a pretty wet year! Once October rolled around, things cooled down quite a bit and the rain was quite heavy (2008-09 was apparently an especially wet year). Beach season ended early and started late. Down south it can get hot -- very hot. - Oct 28, 2011
Hot and muggy in the summer, cool-ish (50s) and rainy in the winter. A day could change from bright and sunny to raining and then back again within a 10 minute time span. - Jul 11, 2010
HOT summers, rainy winters which are colder than you may think. No snow, but you still need a coat in winter. - May 3, 2010
The weather is hot and dry all summer, mild and rainy during the fall and winter. - Jan 13, 2010
