This makes for an ideal time to explore the coastline and mountains without the usual hustle and bustle. For those seeking a bargain, the winter season – especially December – offers cheap lodging. However, road closures due to the rainy weather may hinder your travels. Spring ushers in the blooming of wildflowers and cooler temperatures. Summer, though popular, is made less appealing with coastal fog and large crowds. It’s essential to note that temperatures do fluctuate between geographic locations, with the coast being cooler than inland. It’s advisable to pack a jacket regardless of the time of year.
