seasons that many of us are familiar with – it has only
a wet and a dry season. The dry season is generally from January
to April with average temperatures of 80-85 degree fahrenheit.
In the dry season it very rarely rains all day. Although it
obviously rains a lot more in the wet season, many of the
downpours do not last for long periods of time. It is possible
to travel comfortably in both seasons.
