Warm weather

Equatorial climate: its name due to its proximity to the areas of Ecuador, and its main characteristic is that large clouds form that make it rain almost every afternoon. It is a climate that moves geographically depending on the wind of each day. It is the climate that usually exists in the Amazon regions, in the Yucatan peninsula, in the eastern part of Panama, central Africa or the western coast of Madagascar.


Tropical climate: It can occur both north and south of the equatorial climate, with a minimum temperature of 18ºC throughout the year. It doesn't rain much but when it does it is usually in the summer. It is found in parts of the Caribbean, northern Australia, southern India or Polynesia).

Temperate climates

Chinese weather: It is found in places like northern India, southern Brazil and Uruguay, northwest Argentina, Japan or South Korea. It is characterized by having hot and humid summers and by less warm winters.

Mediterranean climate: It is especially characterized by what it offers in summer, which are high temperatures and for having drought, while winters are mild. It is found in the Mediterranean area, California, southern South Africa, central Chile or southwest Australia.

Continental weather: It is probably the climate that best defines each of the four seasons. Summers are very hot and rainy, while winters are cold and dry.

Cold climates
