When to go

The cool season from November through February is the most pleasant time of year. Hot season from March through May can get pretty close and you’ll need to rest frequently and drink a lot of water. Rainy season is okay, as the rains are intermittent and the rains relieve the heat — plus the vegetation is spectacular at that time. Mosquito-borne diseases are more of a concern at this time though (see Health).
