Climate and Seasonality
Summer is from November to the end of March and usually brings very high temperatures (approx. 19 – 30ºC / 66 – 89ºF). It is also the rainy season and cloud coverage and rain can cool things down, although only usually for a short period of time.
The winter season begins in May and ends in August. This is also the dry season when virtually no rainfall occurs. Winter days are invariably sunny and cool to warm; however, evening and night temperatures can drop below freezing point in some areas (approx. 8 - 26ºC / 45 - 80ºF).
The in-between periods - April/early May and September/October - still tend to be dry, but the days are cooler than in summer and the nights are warmer than in winter.
