Indonesia is an archipelago of islands crossed by the Equator, its surface is very large and the climate changes from equatorial and sub-equatorial in the central-northern part, to a tropical climate in the islands located further south.
In most of the islands there is an equatorial climate with high temperatures all year round, particularly intense and constant humidity and abundant rainfall throughout the seasons. Actually, in these areas there are no distinct seasons, but there are some months with slightly less rainfall, and these are from May to September.
The millimeters of rain that fall throughout the year are many, from 2000 to 3000 mm and in the wettest months some roads become impassable. Fortunately, the rains never reach cyclonic intensity, given the distance from the most violent influences of the monsoon.
In the mountainous areas, almost volcanic, the rains are double in intensity and quantity, here the rainy season is present practically all year round and leaves no room for great truces.
In the southernmost area, Jakarta, Bali and the islands near Australia, two seasons can be distinguished, a wetter one from November to May with heavy rains and a relatively dry and less rainy season from June to October. Rainfall is considerably reduced, especially on the islands closer to Australia.
Therefore the best time to travel to Indonesia is definitely during our summer

, between July and August.
