Dry sunny days and mild temperatures. Perfect for any activity across the country, whether exploring the bustling colonial cities, lying on the beach or trekking up volcanoes and through nature reserves. Things peak at Christmas, New Year and Easter, so book well in advance.
Chances of showers that will be short and swift without causing inconvenience. Lesser crowds and better value on hotel tariffs. A perfect time for wildlife, particularly bird-watching and snorkeling.
The wet season, where adventure activities may shut down. September and October are the worst where rural roads will become virtually impassable.
