When to travel
Go in low season (March-June and October-December) to avoid the crowds and the heat. It can be quite cool from July to August (usually in the low 20°C's). The hottest time is from December to February, when temperatures often reach 30°C and above and it can be humid with frequent short bursts of rain. This is also the busiest time of year (New Year is one big party). Weekends are also busier than weekdays here.
