Climate and topography[edit]

The topography of the area is slightly undulated, with uniform characteristics and slight slopes, which help with communications. The soil is very apt for agriculture. The area is located in an elevated terrain, at about 101 m (304 ft), which permits the natural draining of waters on all four points of the compass. As a result, flooding is rare.

Climate is temperate. It has a humid period from March to July. The last two months are not humid because of precipitation, but for the accumulated water in the soil. August would be the only dry month if not for the aforementioned. No month of the year presents an excess of water. January and February have a deficiency of 60 mm (2.3 in) together. During the rest of the year there is no water deficit because evaporation is amply covered with rain and soil accumulation.

Twin cities[edit]
