Spring & Summer
June to August are generally warm and sunny months, but be prepared for rainy days and the mosquitoes that tend to accompany wet weather! Long pants and sleeves during the evening will help keep these pesky insects at bay. Daylight hours can last up to 17 hours at the peak of summer, so come prepared with sunglasses and sunscreen!
