RAINY/COLD SEASON INFO:
The rainy season is from mid May— End of September. The first rains start end of April, from end of May we get rain almost constantly until September which makes it very difficult to build. The ground is very muddy and it’s a great time for scorpions to find their food. If you choose to come during these months insure you have appropriate footwear, the best footwear is rainboots that are knee high and don’t forget you wet weather gear.
The Winter season is December through to February. The nights can get as cold as 6′C. Warm jackets, long pants, gloves and socks are recommended, you may also like to bring a travel sleeping bag. From February to April is the HOT dry season, there is a lot of burning off this time of you and if you have allergies it’s advised to always carry you medication.
