When to Go
Winter weather is the best, and it's the height of the surfing season, so you'll need to book well in advance. Between December and March you might get a glimpse of the humpback whales that winter off the coast. During the summer many family-oriented hotels fill up with sanjuaneros escaping the city for the weekend—some hotels require a two-night stay. Larger resorts normally drop their rates in summer by at least 10%. The weather gets hot, especially in August and September.
