Here’s at glance at the best guide for where to travel every month of the year:

o   January – Costa Rica: Enjoy the best weather of the year for adventures in San Jose’s bustling capital, on Guanacaste’s beaches, and along the Arenal Volcano.

o   February – United Arab Emirates: Great weather and low humidity make both outdoor sightseeing in Dubai & Abu Dhabi and desert safaris and excursions truly enjoyable. 

o   March – Egypt: There are less crowds for sightseeing in Giza, Aswan and Luxor. The weather is comfortable, and hotels and ships have more availability.

o   April – Israel: The weather is wonderful this time of year as the streets come alive with meaningful experiences for both the Easter and Passover holidays. 

o   May – Eastern & Southern Africa: Enjoy great weather and fewer crowds. In Zimbabwe, the weather is mild and dry and stunning Victoria Falls are at their greatest volume.

o   June – France: The weather is very pleasant in all of France including Paris, Burgundy, Normandy and Provence, where the lavender fields are blooming.

o   July – Greece: The weather is great and the beaches are even better. We recommend Athens and island-hopping in Santorini, Mykonos, Crete and more.

o   August – Portugal: The weather is wonderful and many festivals take place this month. Check out the Aug. 15 feasts in the Azores plus the weekly running of the bulls.

o   September – Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands: Great weather is to be had in beautiful Ecuador. We suggest taking a cruise to the Galapagos Islands where the wildlife is very active.

o   October – Italy: The weather is at its best this time of year and there are no school crowds. Enjoy so many events, including local harvest festivals.

o   November – Peru: This is an especially good time of year to visit Peru with fewer crowds in Lima, Cusco and the Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu 

o   December – Spain: Enjoy warmer days in Costa del Sol and skiing in Sierra Nevada. Visit the Christmas market in Barcelona and spend New Year’s in Madrid.
