It is true that weather is unpredictable but you can at least know which time is suggested.

Accommodation

tips

See which area you are planning to visit most often during your trip and stay in that area. If you are going to visit an island, try to stay in a coastal area so everything is within your walking distance. The other option of accommodation for islands can be to stay in the town area so ATMs, bike rentals and other services would be available. If you are choosing a hilly area for your vacation, try to stay in a resort where the required services would be available.
