Temperate durante most of the year (mid to low eighties, Fahrenheit). During the months of January and February, temperatures drop somewhat, especially during the nights. The spring months(April to June) tend to be our hottest and driest season. When the rainy season begins (mid-June) the entire region is refreshed and temperatures fall once again. During the rainy season (mid-June through September) it tends to rain for short periods during the afternoon or at night. It seldom rains all day.
Informal, shorts, pants, t-shirts, sturdy shoes for the cobblestones. Don't forget your bathing suit and something a little more formal for going out at night. Also a light jacket for the evenings and an umbrella during the rainy season.
