I should mention that the rainy season had arrived pretty much the day we arrived. The locals told us it had been wonderful weather, and then we brought the rain with us. Well, the rain was coming with or without us, but usually it starts a week or two later. For the most part during the whole time I was there it would start raining between three and five in the afternoon, and stop raining between eight and ten at night. But a couple times we had major thunderstorms roll over us. These tend to have a very well-defined front edge, and can be seen coming if you have the right vantage point and can be heard approaching as well by the loud sound of rain hitting the forest canopy.
