Andres,
Something is getting wet from the humidity and causing a no-spark or weak spark condition. Check your dostributor cap very carefully for hairline cracks. Check your plug wires; if they are cracked and brittle, replace them. Have your coil tested; if it's weak replace it. A good upgrade is to get rid of your ignition points (which are susceptible to moisture) and replace with a Pertronix electronic ignition. About $60 from justbmws.com
Good Luck,
Colin
