Weather all year round
The weather in Kerala is conditioned by a tropical climate, so the region does not experience any major climatic variations. There are, of course, two seasons: dry (peak in April and May) and wet. The southwest monsoon reaches the coast in early June and, in a few days, it extends to Maharastra and covers the entire country in mid-July. Temperatures in Kerala fluctuate throughout the year between 25 and 30°C
India's currency unit is the Indian rupee. When it comes to spending money, Kerala can allow you to be extremely volatile, or on the contrary economical... The country has sumptuous hotels, especially in Kochi, good, clean and comfortable hotels, or small lodges or guest houses that are more or less clean. Your choice will therefore depend on your budget. Prices increase during the high season (October to February), sometimes drastically

It is valid for a maximum of 60 days (2-entry visa; online formalities) and cannot be extended, but the waiting times to obtain it are much shorter and the procedures are carried out online. Please note that this type of visa is only valid on arrival at certain airports (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Kochi, Trivandrum, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Goa).

India has a bad reputation for its food hygiene and in particular for the quality of its water : water is not drinkable in Kerala. This is all the more true during the monsoon season and in summer. Health situations differ between the countryside and cities, where it is safer. However, by following a few simple hygiene rules (wash your hands well before and after meals, wash your teeth with bottled water), you should not encounter any problems. For vaccines in Kerala, it is strongly recommended to check that all your conventional vaccines are up to date.
