    From April to September – this period is called the “dry season”. These are the months of highest contrasts, being very hot and dry during the day and very cold with occasional frosting and dry at nights and early mornings. Mid-April and May is the best time for the Highlands, where fields and mountains show unusually lush vegetation with magnificent views and good weather. You can find flowers in full bloom, the grass green, and the streams full.

    The “rainy season” is from October to March, being particularly intense during January and February, where it can rain all day. Temperatures are mild during the day, with only a small fall overnight.
