The Americas

Weather

The climate of the Americas varies significantly from region to region. Tropical rainforest climate occurs in the latitudes of the Amazon, American Cloud forests and Florida. Often the higher altitudes like the Rocky Mountains, are snow capped. Southeastern North America is well known for its occurrence of tornadoes and hurricanes. Often parts of the Caribbean are also exposed to hurricanes. These weather systems are formed by the collision of dry, cool air from Canada and wet, warm air from the Atlantic.

Couples will love

The incredible snorkeling locations the Pacific Islands have to offer. Experience an underwater haven with your loved one and take up the once in a lifetime opportunity to snorkel. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, couples will love the trip back on their luxury cruise ship offering delicious wine and treats.

Best time to go

The USA is considered to be at its best in the summer, but to avoid the crowds try to visit in September and October when the peak season is over but the weather in USA is still nice and comfortable. Further north, Canada is best during the Autumn, particularly September and October. In South America the peak season is from December to March, with Spring and Autumn the best time to visit Buenos Aires. Late April and September are also the best.
