By the end of November there is a drastic decrease in rain and the island opens up for tourism. The average temperature remains the same, but you can expect cool temperatures during the night. The months between December and March are the best time for water sports and sight-seeing. These are also the months with the least risk of sea-sickness. Being such a popular time you may find hotels booked months in advance, so it is advisable to plan early.
