Seasonality and Weather
Temperature can vary greatly depending on elevation. Cloud forest / mountain areas can be quite cool and misty, while coastal areas are much hotter and humid. The "green" season runs May-November. The warm dry season is Dec-May, though temperature differences between seasons are slight.
Transport and Travel Conditions
Road transport by private air-conditioned motor coach, 12-30 seats depending on ultimate group size (see 'group size'). The countries' roads are generally good though we do have some long (though scenic) road journeys. Numerous nature walks and walking tours on uneven surfaces.
Well-located, heated / air-conditioned, mid-range (3 star) hotels with en suite toilet and bath throughout (probably shower only). Single rooms are limited and likely smaller than doubles. Hotel porter service is sometimes available (see 'Inclusions') though you should be independent with your luggage. Some hotels have outdoor swimming pools.
