Hot and humid and really hot. It is overcast and rainy for much the year (from Mid April to December) when it is also super humid. One will be sweaty just walking from the car to one's place of business. The dry season is sunny and although hotter, it's at least a little more comfortable because of reduced humidity. The downside to the dry season is that the beautiful, lush, green countryside turns brown. - May 2015

The dry season is from December to March. Rainy season can have afternoon showers (you need a large umbrella and galoshes/flip flops)or torrential showers with 10 inches in an hour perhaps.
