C-, rainfall is over the top and I would like some seasonal variation in temps. But it is better then a year round cool climate.

Horrible climate -F.
The hottest and most humid day of the year here, rammed at you for another 365 (2012 is a leap year).
As bad as any equatorial climate on Earth.

This is a F minus climate if I ever saw one. Hot in the afternoon, very hot nights (well above 70F), and very humid, with no seasonality and no respite. A horrid climate for someone like me.

However, I'm not put off by the high annual rainfall. In fact, if the temperature and humidity was the same, I'd prefer it to be rainy rather than dry. The humidity in a place like that can't get much worse than it already is, the rain adds a little bit of interest (heavy rain panging on roofs), and it helps to get a lower sunshine total, which won't help much at all when it's this horrible, but it's better than a high sun total in any case. I'd rather be in Quibdo than Singapore, for instance. But if I have to be in a rainy climate I'd book the next flight to the rainiest place in Alaska in a heartbeat if I were in Quibdo. Hot and humid is still hot and humid; rain and sun are irrelevant to that.

Like most wet equatorial locations, <2200 hours. It's a popular myth that the closer you get to the equator, the sunnier it gets. Af climates are very wet and overcast very often. I come from an Am climate, and I can drive 20 miles east to an Af microclimate and it's always overcast and gets about 2000 hours a year. Weno should be about the same, or have slightly less hours, it has the same climate as Singapore and only 5 degrees latitude apart.
