Guide to El Paso


El Paso is a city built on a desert. Therefore, the days are scorchingly hot while the nights can get shiveringly cold. Summers are hot and dry while winters are cold (and also dry!). The monsoon season prevails from July to September so you might need to carry an umbrella if you are visiting during this time of the year. You might also experience some sand and dust storms during the spring season.
