Best Time to Visit

by Mycala
(PA - USA)

I was on Terceira in 1978-1979 while in the Air Force and it has been my lifelong dream to return. (I am sure it has changed immensely!) When would be the best time of the year to go - we can only go between October and April...what month would be best?? We plan to stay about 3 weeks and see as many of the islands as possible. Any advice?? Also, when I was there, I met several young ladies - I am female and had been a teacher, so the 10-12 year olds gravitated to my house!! - and would like to contact them just to see how they are doing. Have photos and first names and knew the street they lived on back then but nothing more. Any suggestions?
Thank you! Enjoy your publication very much.

Hi Mycala,
October - April is the season with the most rain. I would aim for October if I were you.

Three weeks will be great. You will find it more enjoyable if you stick to just a few islands, instead of trying them all. Weather can impact travel plans so leave a few days between inter island flights.

Obviously you will want to spend the most time in Terceira. If you spend time in your old town, I imagine you find some old friends who are still there!
