It pays to know
when and when not to
visit a travel destination

Not knowing could decrease your vacation enjoyment.

Bear in mind

There is no way to know for certain what weather you will experience in the future. Mother Nature has her whims. Seasonal weather conditions change from year to year.

Therefore, don't automatically accept advice such as, "Go in November because it was warm and sunny when I was there last year."

To serve you best, my guidance is based on long-term averages, not on a single year.

I cannot guarantee you exactly what the weather will be like on your next trip. But my well-researched advice will let you play the odds in your favor. I hope you win.

And remember

It better to visit a worthy travel destination during an undesirable time than to never experience it at all.
