Best time to visit

November - March is typically the best period for those heading to the west coast, lowlands or highlands. You’ll have dry weather that’s ideal for exploring and outdoor activities. However, if you’re planning on adventuring to the east, time your trip around the months of April - September for sun and warmth.
