The average daily temperature is around 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit). The nicest weather is in the dry period from January to April. The sun shines often and sometimes some clouds appear which grow into a rainstorm. The weather is the friendliest during this period.

During the wet period you can expect days with grey, wet and windy weather.
