Weather: The rainy season begins with continuous drizzles towards the end of the month, but it is rather warm in April. Average low and high temperatures are 19 °C (66 °F) and 23 °C (74 °F).
Clothing: A long-sleeve shirt or even a T-shirt is enough for the day time, but at early morning or evening you will need a cardigan or sweater.
If you travel to mountainous areas, you will need a coat. Bring an umbrella and mosquito repellant, because after the rain there are many mosquitoes.
