Azores in March?

Jump to last reply

I am looking for a destination to take my 16 year old daughter for Spring Break in March. The Azores seems to be a great fit - for scenery, food, temperate climate, proximity to US, safety, friendly residents.

I do have a few questions - hoping some of you veterans can help ...

The first hotel I investigated is closed only open May-Oct (on Pico) which made me wonder if much of the islands operate seasonally and will we be making a mistake to travel there in March? It seems that the ferry system does not operate in March so we will need to fly between islands?

We are interested in hiking, small charming villages - and she loves to sail so it would be wonderful to find a sailing trip for the day - perhaps to visit another island.

The most attractive lodging to me keeps coming up on Pico (small, charming, but good facilities) and Pico looks to be a lush and beautiful island - but it is of course a little more difficult to reach (2 flights to Boston, then Boston - Sao Miguel - Terceira - Pico ... makes for tiring travel even though the flights are short). I am willing to take the extra flights if the final destination is worth the extra travel - any thoughts??

Thanks in advance for any help!
