July and August are awesome in SC. Don't let anyone tell you different.

Heatstroke Kills. If you are not acclimated to the temp/humidity, you are at risk. I have seen a heat index of 120+ many times with 90+percent humidity.


Use due diligence. Most San Carlos Gringos who have the means leave from May till November +/-. But, the native Mexicans who live here year around tolerate it.

Spend a summer ANYWHERE in the southeast and you'll know "heat index".

I submit that it is much better here than there. Grab a XX and chill. Or better yet, go fishin.

ez, I can agree with you about what you say about the east coast summers. I once worked along the coast in NC after a hurricane. I couldn't write notes because sweat kept dripping (pouring) from my cap onto my notepad. I could only work for 2 to 3 hours then I had to retreat to the hotel and cool down my core temperature. The same thing happened to me when I used to go down to SC in the hot months (Starting in my late 50's). I'm just saying that if someone is coming from a cooler/dryer place to visit in SC they need to be prepared. I am a desert rat. I can take the heat. I can't take relentless humidity. I think that anyone planing to visit should be aware of what to expect.......instead of having Salty folks giving their personal advise about how "nice it is (for them)" during the summer. It certainly is nothing like sea side at my place in Mission Beach. 


You have to admit that only a small percentage of San Carlos Gringos live out the Summers in SC.

I have spend a few summers here in the past and promised to my self , that never again will i have to do that again. Staying till June is the most i personally can take and coming back not before October or later is even better. Perfect weather for me right now , could live with that year around.

Get in the water and cool down.  Go inside sometime and turn the AC on.

SC is too windy in the winter.  Summer is much more fun.  Nothing better than boating all day and then watching a wicked lightning storm over the bay at night.  May to mid-November are the very best months.  Ppl who leave miss it all.

I love living here all year and agree with most of what JZ said, except the summer water temperature is not very cooling.

Better to get in the a/c and drink cold drinks if you suffer from the heat, as he also mentioned.

Summers in San Carlos are fun and interesting, with lots of vacationing MX nationals.  The humidity can’t rival the discomfort in the USA Midwest, and we have great lightening shows in July and August here.  No lines at the bank when the snowbirds are gone! 😋
