CLIMATE

In April, temperatures really begin to heat up, there is less rain and more hours of sunshine. Spring really is in full swing!
The average daily temperature reaches 24°C (about 75°F) and only dips down to about 11°C (that's 52°F).
As you may need a jacket, it is best to bring several layers of light clothing that can be put on or taken off as and when required. Keep in mind, there is still a fair amount of rain in April.

DRESS CODE

Informal for all occasions
