We have 340 sunny days each year, and being on the Equator there is almost no seasonal variation. Most days are warm and dry with a temperature of 24˚C at 10am and 28˚C at 4pm. Humidity rarely rises above 25%. Evenings and nights can be cool – as low as 15 and in the rainy seasons 12.

Our rainy seasons are typically mid-April to end May, and mid November to mid December. Almost all our rain falls at night, and rarely interferes with guest activities. The transformation of the landscape from blond to green is a twice yearly marvel, and the crystal clarity of the air a sight to behold.
