The island nation of Maldives is found in the Indian Ocean, southwest of India and Sri Lanka in the Laccadive Sea or Lakshadweep Sea. Comprised of more than a thousand islands grouped in 26 atolls, it enjoys a tropical climate with hot and humid days and temperatures around 24-33°C/75-91°F year-round. The southwest Monsoon brings significant rain to the area from April to October, particularly June to August. Don't let the rain deter you from visiting though, as what you can suspect from the coconut palm and the yellow-fin tuna, symbols of this island nation, the Maldives is a paradise on earth synonym to memorable experiences!
