Pros: the weather is so pleasant. It’s so cool and dry, which makes that’s really ideal for outdoor activities and beach sports. You can plan for doing any activity you want, and visiting any place you love. In March, it will not be too cold so you don’t have to bring many warm clothes, and not too hot to be burned under the sun. Another advantage when travelling during the high season is that you will never get any tour cancellation just because they can’t have enough people for that tour or activity. It would be great trouble if you have a last-minute cancellation, and can’t find an alternative.

Cons: Coming to any tourist destination during its peak season, there’s always a lot of people coming too, and on average, the service prices are higher than the other time of the year. If you want to come in March, besides the fact that you will have to pay a higher price for the same accommodation or service, you will also have to deal with the situation of the shortage of transportation if you can’t book it in advance. All the famous restaurants will also be full of people all the time, and it’s hard too to take perfect pictures in that crowd.
