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

Mostly hot but cools off April to September. The biggest issue is rains and storms. There are constant electrical outages. Homes do not have generators. I have lost food often. With the heavy rains come the mosquitoes that bring Dengue. That is no fun. - Jan 2021

It is generally hot and humid here! The Paraguayans wear jackets if its near 70 degrees Fahrenheit. If they can afford it, the Paraguayans go away during the months of January and February (very hot and humid). Museums close during this time, so it's great time to get out of country. The coolest months get to the 60s and occasionally the 50s. However when it is chilly it gets in your bones due to the humidity. People in the houses complain they can get pretty cold. - Jun 2019

Temperate, mostly. Hot gets hot and muggy. Cold gets tingly. But neither is unbearable. Air conditioners are everywhere and you can grab a blanky and hot cup of mate. - Aug 2018

Hot and humid Dec-March and surprisingly cold June-August. Transition seasons are spring-like. - Aug 2011

Varied. Winter can be "cold" as in the 50s, summers 100s. Summer time turns many into prisoners of the indoors. It's so hot and humid and there's very little green space in the city, you cannot stay outdoors for long. - Jun 2011

It's very hot for about 4 months, hot for about 4 months, and quite temperate for about 4 months. - Apr 2010
