I plan to travel in Andalusia in late May - early June. Experienced travelers to that area say it is hot then. What is the best time to travel by bus or train between cities that I am visiting? I would think early to mid afternoon, but correct me if I am wrong. I'd like to minimize "down time" due to heat. Thanks in advance!
That sounds smart to me, since the trains and buses should be air-conditioned. I write "should" because a mechanical malfunction is always possible. In addition, some attractions will be closed for part of the afternoon. The disadvantage to departing around mid-day is that you'll be dragging your luggage to the station in the heat if you choose to walk rather than take some form of transportation.
