What identifies a tropical climate?

I am going somewhere with that climate, and I'm not sure what to expect besides hot!

The temperature in the tropics does not change seasonally. Only the humidity and amount of rain changes. It may change twice a year, or there could even be two dry seasons and two wet seasons per year. The day length does not change much, either, and twilight or dusk is a rather quick phenomenon, compared to the temperate zone.

Tropical climate depends on where you are. It not only includes the South Pacific area and Caribbean, but also large stretches of African desert and Savannah. Generally, though you can expect an area that is humid and prone to rain. The average year around temperature is in the 60's, so expect it to be warm.

A tropical climate means hot, humid - could be rainy or rain for short periods at a time. Tropical is very green and lush so hot, humid and rain is what makes things grow!
