July and August are traditionally popular times for both Mexicans and international tourists to go on vacation in Veracruz, so prices can jump there during those months — despite the rain that tends to fall in this humid area. December and April are also prime months for tourism, thanks to extra vacation days over Christmas and Spring Break. While you might want to avoid the crowds, a low season trip is best avoided here: Although the prices can drop dramatically, hurricane season in Veracruz runs from June to October (though keep an eye out for late storms).

While we've cautioned you about visiting Europe during Easter, there's one place where Easter and Holy Week are actually the reason for visiting. Welcome to Seville (Sevilla), where the ceremonies at this time of year are surreal. Don't expect bargains — April in Seville means high prices on hotels — and you certainly won't have the town to yourself. Instead, you'll need to book your hotel far in advance, as Seville's Holy Week festivities are some of the most remarkable in the world.

"The Five Lands" from north to south are Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. There are hotels in each of the five villages, or you could choose to stay in nearby Biassa or La Spezia, where the IC trains stop.

Cat Island's year-round temperatures range from the 60s in the winter to the low 90s in the summer, so there's no real bad time to visit. That being said, June to October is the rainy season, with the largest amount of precipitation in October. Humidity also rises during this time of year. Rain tends to come in periodic downpours, so there's a good chance the entire day won't be lost. If you decide to visit in June, be sure to check the dates for the annual Rake and Scrape Festival, which celebrates the Bahamas' indigenous music, traditionally made with washboards and accordions, though the genre has expanded to include other sounds.
