Hawaii Too Hot in the Summer?

This is a question I get a lot because many people think Hawaii will be too hot in the summer, especially from people in climates that are cold in the winter. When it comes time to plan a tropical vacation, it seems to make sense that it will be chillier in the winter and warm and humid in the summer. But that's the great thing about a tropical climate...its average temperatures really do not fluctuate very much so the temperature is comfortable all year long. If you're used to four seasons a year, you'll be surprised that Hawaii only has two seasons...summer from May to October and winter from November to April. The differences between the two are actually very minor. The average temperature in the winter is about 78 degrees and in the summer is 85 degrees. So it is slightly warmer in the summer, but not enough to be uncomfortable. And the really cool thing about the Hawaiian Islands is that the trade winds blow and make it even nicer. Oh, another thing. The ocean temperatures are pretty consistently warm too. If you come to Hawaii in the winter, you don't have to worry that it'll be too cold to go in the water. So don't worry about temperature when you're planning your trip. No matter when you go, you're sure to be pleased with the climate.
