Although Venezuela lies within the tropics, the climate of the country depends on elevation. The lowland areas enjoy a tropical climate while mountainous regions are naturally cooler. Temperatures tend to drop approximately 6.5˚C (5.4˚F) for every 1,000 m (3,280 ft) in elevation. As most of the country is below 1,000 m, temperatures average around 21-29˚C (70-85˚F). In the highest mountain regions, snow exists on some of the points and temperatures can drop to around 8˚C (46˚F).
Seasonal variations in Venezuela are dependent more on rainfall than on temperature and due to the country’s location near the equator, temperatures vary little throughout the year. The rainy season in Venezuela runs from May to December and is commonly referred to as winter while the remainder of the year is classified as summer. During the rainy season, downpours tend to occur through the night or in short bursts in the afternoon.
