In low-lying places, on the Caribbean Sea and in the south of the Pacific coast, daytime temperatures range from +27 C to +33 C all year round. At night it is slightly cooler than during the day. Precipitation falls a lot - from 1000 mm. per year on the Pacific coast, up to 3000-5000 mm. per year on the Caribbean.
