Caguas’s Time Zone, as well as the time zone of Puerto Rico, is GMT – 4 and it does not change during the summer months. This is the reason why during the summer season, Puerto Rico’s time coincides with that of the east coast of the USA.
Caguas enjoys a humid and tropical climate with an abundance of sunny days, and alternating rains during the whole year. The maximum temperature averages around 87 °F (30 °C), and 67°F (19° C) at minimum. Because there is no difference between summer and winter climate, there is little temperature variation throughout the year. Trade winds from the East cool the region.
