Open: Year-Round

Peak Season: December–March; August (2 night minimum stay)

The weather: Between December and April is the best time in the Hill Country. Temperatures range from (30° C) during the day and can drop to (20° C) in the evenings. The days are generally bright and cool, but don’t be fooled: Wear sunscreen when out in the open as the sun is still harsh, especially in higher altitudes.
