Typical of all parts of the tropics, Pago Pago is hot, humid, rainy, and subject to hurricanes. The climate makes for a relaxed, informal atmosphere and is easily tolerated with appropriate attire. Light-weight cotton clothing is recommended because cotton tends to dissipate perspiration quickly causing a cooling effect, and you will perspire. Hurricane season is during the months of December through March, but hurricanes are infrequent and seldom result in loss of life.
