Local Tips

Because we're surrounded by the Sonora Desert, travelers can expect hot summers and mild winters. Drink plenty of water before you travel to the Valley of the Sun and keep a cold bottle of water with you at all times. And don't forget the sun block! February is the rainiest month; monsoon storms develop suddenly and occur from July to September, so be prepared for blowing dust & strong winds.
