Climate & when to go
Peak times for travelers are Christmas, Easter, July and August. Overbooking and price hikes are the disadvantages at these times, especially during July and August, when it’s also unpleasantly hot throughout much of the country. The ideal time to visit is January to May, when it’s warm but uncrowded and there’s no threat of hurricanes (which can be a problem on the coasts from June to November). Festivals happen all year round.
