Best Period to Go: The best time to visit Santander as per the weather is in the summer when the precipitation levels are low. The summers are warm and sunny without being uncomfortably hot. However, the winters are also mild and pleasant and are relatively free of frost. One should avoid the rainy season as it would tend to keep you indoors.
