As our kids are older, and can’t really miss school anymore, we have been doing August trips. As said in previous threads, incrediably hot and humid, but you should enjoy yourself anyways. Make sure you stop in many of the shops for a cool down break, taking advantage of the air conditioning. A mid-day break is almost a requirement or you will fade out very quickly. To me, its a great opportunity to enjoy the resort you stay at. We also purchase those cute shrunk wrapped washclothes, and whenever near a cold water fountain, wet it down and place behind the neck. Other than that, make sure you drink plenty of water. All counter service restuarants will provide you with a large cup of ice water for free if you ask for it.
