Sometimes it blows every day for weeks on end. From mid November through April the easterly trade winds blowing across the Caribbean are reinforced by the strong northeasterly flow from the Gulf of Mexico. The winds are funneled through the mountains of Northern Costa Rica and reach maximum strength at the western end of the lake.
