Travelling is a thrill for everyone, but it is important not to get carried away in a hurry when planning for one. The ideal approach is to plan well and try to anticipate all the situations that could arise during the trip. An important decision to make is to decide what time of year to make a dream trip. Remember that in some places, there are months when the weather is not ideal for a vacation, so here is a short guide to the best times of year to visit some wonderful destinations.
High season for trips around the world
No one wants to go to a beautiful beach in the Caribbean Sea or the Pacific Ocean, only to get caught in a hurricane that devastates the entire coast. That would be depressing and dangerous. This is why it is very important to find out about the best time of year to travel.
If you are thinking of visiting Europe, be aware that in June, July, August and September, Europe is characterized by a warm climate, while on other continents, such as Asia and Africa, the climate is totally different. These climates also differ in the winter months. In the particular case of France, do not forget that the high tourist season extends from May to July. If you decide to travel in France during these months, you will find the tourist places such as the main cities and beaches get quite crowded. If you prefer to enjoy empty places and decide to wait until the end of the high tourist season, don’t forget to bring warm clothes with you. In cities like Paris, for example, temperatures are quite low in winter. From October to April, there is a cold climate, which becomes particularly harsh from November to March.
If you like very lively and crowded places, heat and so on, you can choose to travel to Italy in high season. This lasts from June to September, but keep in mind that there will be many tourists and travelers, and the cost of products and services is high for most of that time. On the other hand, if you are someone who likes peace and quiet, more relaxed activities and prefers to avoid crowds, you can travel from October when the high season starts to decline. From that time you will be able to visit the best places with less crowding and at better prices.
If you are attracted to a tropical destination on any coast of the Caribbean Sea or Pacific Ocean, the best time for a trip is between November and April. This is because between May and October, it is a season characterized by humidity in the region, and the risk of a tropical cyclone is high. Most hurricanes occur between August and October, although the hurricane season extends from June to November.
However, if you plan to eat real tacos in Mexico and sing to the rhythm of mariachi, the best time to visit this Latin American country is from November to April, during the dry season. During October and November tourists can visit the Yucatán after the rainy season, and the desert plateaus in the north of the country, where temperatures are not too extreme.
Another destination not to be missed is Cuba. This island is worth a visit at any time of the year, and the best months to visit Cuba are from mid-November to mid-April during the dry season, which guarantees a sunny and pleasant climate for all visitors.
If you want to immerse yourself in an ancient culture and enjoy the beauty of nature, the spring flowering of trees and shrubs is most exuberant in Japan during May. In addition, you can enjoy low tourist numbers and a magnificent climate, except in Okinawa, where the tsuyu season begins; a rainy season that precedes the summer. In the rest of Japan this season occurs throughout June.
During the dry season in Tanzania, from June to October, it is the high safari season, but the best time to visit the Serengeti and discover the wildebeest migration is between August and November. Although in June there is not as much rain, the heat is more suffocating and in October, the temperature is milder.
