One growing hint might be that the plants don't take much water in from the soil (due to the lack of precipitation), but mostly from the air, which might explain the hairy structures of the leaves (the hairs increase the total surface area, which might help to absorb water). During the Dry Season, fog occurs so often that it even gives the season its name, "Garúa", which means fog in Spanish.
