More accurately stated it is a fruit for hardiness zones 10b and 11 (US system). That means the tree dies if it encounters frost, even maybe only one frosty night in the six years it takes to get to a fruiting stage.

You might be in the tropics but have an altitude and aspect which can entail occasional subzero temperatures and still fail with mango. If you are in a subtropical area with good light and aspect and no cold snaps, then you may succeed with it

This is why the answer is basically yes but there is more to it than that.
