I've been there in  April  many years ago but this time I plan a Dec trip.  Can someone who's been there at  that time share their experience with me?  Weather, Holiday celebrations etc?  I'd love to hear from others who plan to be there In Dec 2011

I was there in early January of 2000, and a friend who'd been the year before told me that they could swim.  It wasn't that warm when we were there.  But we could sit outside in the sun.

Nowadays, you really can't depend on previous years or all those tables of temperatures and rainfall.  My advice is as usual.  Plan to dress in layers.  But put in a bathing suit.  After all, how much room does it take up?
