What to bring by season

Rainy season (June to September): temperatures can reach 33 °C (91 °F), with a warmer temperature feeling due to humidity. There are sunny days with rains in the afternoon or evening, which help to reduce temperatures.

Dry season (October to May): the climate is drier and less humid in these months. The average temperature is 27 °C (81 °F) and nights can be very cool, with almost 18 °C (64 °F). It may rain occasionally.

You should bring light clothing, preferably made of cotton, a swimsuit, sunscreen, sunglasses, a cap or hat, and an umbrella or rain jacket. During the dry season, we suggest wearing a sweater or light jacket, as well as long-sleeved shirts and pants.

Useful Tips

  • - Most restaurants request a casual or smart-casual dress code, so men should wear trousers and long-sleeved shirts.

    - Some bars and nightclubs do not allow flip-flops, so we suggest wearing a formal pair of shoes.
