I was there in May so I can’t answer other than to say check the average rainfall by month. There are definitely some months where it rains a whole lot. I think it’s Oct/Nov. It rained heavily each afternoon for a 1-2 hours, but it was nice and welcomed.

Hi! It poured almost every day I was there, and I still had the best vacation of my life. The good news is, surfing is an activity that can be done quite happily in the rain -- after all, you're already wet! And I loved sitting in the rocking chair on the porch outside my room, reading while the rain fell. As for the comment from "k m," they're pretty obviously either working for or being paid by a competitor. The ride to the beach was one of my favorite parts of the day, getting to know my fellow guests and our coaches. Oh: And the waves were perfectly predictable, as far as waves go. They're waves. I was the least-advanced surfer of the group while I was there, and the coaches took time out to stay with me and help me improve while the more advanced surfers paddled farther out and caught bigger waves, worked on turns, etc. Go to Kalon!

^^As a "real" person who visited the resort in January and had a fantastic trip, as did all the other guests, take the above comment with a grain of salt. Feel free to email me personally if you have any Kalon questions or doubt my authenticity. On your mosquito question, we did not experience any mosquitos (other bugs, yes (it is a jungle after all), but no mosquitos. The resort is on top of a mountain with breezes almost all the time which could cut down on mosquito population.
