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

Rainy season June - Oct, then it never rains again and gets hot and dry and dusty. - Aug 2023

Warm and pleasant most of the year. Gets HOT in late spring early summer during the dry season. During the wet season (typically June to October), it rains almost every day, but usually in the evening. Daytimes during rainy season are still dry and kids can play outside. - Jan 2023

There is only one month when you need to wear a jacket. It gets hot, but we have enjoyed it. - Aug 2018

It's like an eternal spring. The hot months are May/June (100 degrees daily). Then comes rainy season July - Sept, when it's about 85 and sunny every day with one rain storm (usually in the evening). Sept - April it's generally gorgeous, 75 - 80 degrees, sunny every day. - Feb 2017

Blue, blue skies. Generally high 70's to low 80's F. The weather is year-round beautiful and while dramatic, the rains are very refreshing and rarely last long. - Feb 2015

It's swimming weather 9 months out of the year. The warmest clothing you'll need is a light jacket. - Jan 2015

There are three basic seasons. The rainy season starts around June and lasts till around September or October. You can expect rain in the late afternoon and evening any day, but it rarely rains in the morning or early afternoon. Everything is lovely and green. Then it cools off and gets drier for a few months. It can get fairly cool in January and you might want a jacket, especially in the evening. It starts to warm up in March and can be quite hot in the afternoons in April and May before the rains start, but since the elevation is high and it's very dry then, it cools off almost every night and the heat doesn't bother me. Even though it's dry in the spring, many bushes and trees flower so it's very colorful. - Oct 2014

Temperate weather, never too cold or too warm. - May 2014

Perfect! Sunny all year with rains in the summer evenings and higher temperatures; it's gorgeous the rest of the year. Pool weather from April- October. - Apr 2014

Perfect if you like it to be hot. Usually over 80 degrees (but not humid). It can be very hot during part of April, all of May and some of June (over 95 degrees), but evenings cool down. The rainy season means about 2 hours of rain daily in late June, July and August, with flash flooding. - Jun 2013

Winters are warm during the day and chilly at night. There is a rainy season during the summer. - Jan 2012

During the dry season October - May it is sunny every day with highs 70-80 during the day and lows of 40-50 at night. During the rainy season temps are warmer at night but moderate during the day, and rain usually occurs at night. - Jan 2011

It's usually nice here. In the winter it can get down into the 30s at night. And in May and June, the hottest months, the 100-degree temps can be kind of brutal. But for the other 10 months it's generally in the 70s and 80s (dry heat) during the day and sunny. June to August is the rainy season, which means it pours (sometimes with hail) after 4 pm almost every day. But it's sunny during most of the day. And this rain cools and cleans the air, which is nice. - Jun 2010

It's a relatively mild climate. It seems to be about 60-85F degrees almost 80% of the year. It rains (usually only at night) from June to September and then it's dry the rest of the year. It can get hot and dusty from February until the rains come in June. - Feb 2008

There are 4 months of rain and heat (June/July through September). The rest of the year is dry with lots of dust. December through March is cold. - Jan 2008
