The tropical climate is characterized by two unique well-marked seasons, rain and drought. The season of drought extends from the month of December to April May of the following year.

The north-south oscillation of the Intertropical Convergence Zone throughout the year determines the place, duration and intensity of the dry and wet seasons. This strip is related to the movements of translation of the Earth and the inclination of the terrestrial axis.

InterTropical Zone

The dry season in January is the coolest of the year in the Caribbean Sea, when temperatures range between 82.1°F and 72.0°F. In general, the average number of days with rain is not more than 10 days with light, sporadic and short rains, where the average rainfall is 71.1 mm (2.8 inches).

Many of the trees during the dry season lose all their leaves and others only partially. This season despite how extreme it may seem for the survival of the vegetation many species have their reproductive period that manifests itself in the flowering of trees, shrubs and climbers. These blooms tend to be spectacular contrasting with the dry environment of grayish brown color and all the trees of the same species of the sector in flowering. The blooms are remarkable in January at the beginning of the dry season with the Coral tree (Erythrina poeppigiana Link to Foto), then the Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia Link to Foto), Pink Trumpet (Tabebuia rosea Link), Amapola (Plumeria rubra Link), Araguaney (Tabebuia chrysantha Link), and many others to finish in May with the Flamboyant (Delonix regia Link).
