Weather Experience: Excellent

It was a wonderful place, beautiful weather— This text has been automatically translated into English

Weather Experience: Good

Most days it was around 20-24 degrees Celsius. But one day when we went to Pokara, it suddenly started raining so hard that the streets were flooded. There was hail bigger than pinocchio balls and it was crazy! We asked some of the locals if this was normal and it was - but sometimes they were much bigger! So there in late February, early March, the weather was pretty good :) You just have to be prepared for these rain showers, but it's just a great experience!— This text has been automatically translated into English
