If can can pick your own time to travel, here are some things to consider;
What is the purpose of your trip? If you want to relax in the sun you'll need to check the weather. Just because it's a tropical destination doesn't mean you won't get rain!
If you want to be active, hiking, biking or even just doing lots of walking, you'll want the temperature to be not too hot or cold.
And if your focus is sightseeing, don't go when attractions are closed or undergoing renovations.
There may be less flights to your destination in the off season, and schedules may not be as convenient.
If you're looking for a cruise, there may be fewer to choose from.
But travelling in the off season can often give you a better glimpse into local life. You'll see more locals and less tourists.
A lot of course depends on your personalty and requirements!
- less crowded
- can be more authentic
- Weather may not be ideal

- Hotels may not be fully functioning
