When to go
The best months to visit are from December to April but the island enjoys consistently hot temperatures year round. The popular tourist area along the north coast is much dryer than elsewhere, and sea breezes help to keep humidity down. The rainy season is from May to October, but the Blue Mountains get quite a bit throughout the year.
