Bawa is just a few degrees above the equator and the climate is tropical with a rainy and a dry season. The dry season goes from mid-October to mid-March, and rainy season from mid-March to mid-October. The heaviest rains come between August and early October and often make the roads impassible to vehicles. However, four-wheel drive vehicles make it with extra effort. Because of the elevation the temperatures are not what many would expect living just a few degrees away from the equator, these vary between 62° and 82° F, with December and January being the hottest months of the year. Temperatures are at their lowest at night.
