Locals can get a bit tired of tourists during the high season, even if you’re on your best behavior. The best part of the off-season is that they’re not dealing with too many other visitors at the same time, and so you’ll find that the locals open up more during this time. Not only are they more willing to help you out, but you can even get some great information from them just from a simple personal conversation.
