@ftovenegas Here are some links I found on google that seem to have good information on hydroponics in tropical climates:
Looking at my copy of Howard M. Resh’s Book, “Hydroponic Food Production”, I see that chapter 13, “Tropical Hydroponics and Special Applications” might be relevant to your question. Resh mentions that high temperatures are an issue which can sometimes be addressed by growing at higher elevations where it gets cooler. Also, he says that lumber can often be scarce and costly, so sometimes people will make raised hydroponic beds from welded steel, concrete, or clay bricks.
Growth media is another big consideration. Resh mentions using flood and drain style hydroponics with a media of sand or gravel. But, it’s important to avoid media that will create silt to plug the drains or react chemically with the nutrient solution.
Resh says another important consideration is protecting crops from excessive rainfall during the wet season. Picking crops that can tolerate some moisture on their leaves can help. Transparent or translucent roofs can help if they are made from a material that will hold up under intense UV radiation (maybe polycarbonate or lexan panels or roll-up retractable polyethylene covers).
The book gives more details and describes other methods like growing in bags or buckets using coco coir or rice hulls for the growth media. Also, Resh seems to assume that nobody would bother with trying to set up artificial lights for hydroponics in the tropics because there’s so much sunlight available.
