Seasons and Climate
There are two seasons in the region: the rainy season from November to March and the dry season from April to October.
However, the weather can be unpredictable - there may be weeks of sun during the rainy season and rain in the dry season.
The temperature is comfortable year round - 70 to 90°F, 20 to 32°C except for during June and July when the winds from the south come in from the Arctic and the temperature can drop to between 45 and 50°F, 7 to 10°C. This wind is locally known as the "surazo".
WHAT OUR GUESTS HAVE TO SAY
We spent 3 nights at Chalalan and have recommended it to everyone we have met since! We are budget travellers but decided to splash out on a stay here and did not regret it for a second. The location is idyllic - 5 hours by boat away from civilisation and right in the middle of stunning rainforest. The lake at the lodge is an added bonus - bathwater temperature and the most beautiful of locations. The sunset trip across the lake by canoe was a highlight of the stay - by far the best way to see the wildlife as it is completely untroubled by the silent canoe drifiting past.
