These countries have the best weather in the whole entire world

By The Hub team, September 30, 2016

Everyone has a different idea of primo weather, but it's safe to say that once you find your happy spot, you feel like a whole new woman. So whether you like it warm and sunny or super snowy, we've rounded up a list of places with near perfect conditions.

Yainis


Best Temps: Ecuador

This South American country is the land of eternal spring, with daytime temperatures in the mid-70s year-round. Plus, since it's, well, on the equator, you basically get the same amount of quality sunlight every single day.


Yuma, Arizona
Experience Scottsdale


Sunniest: Arizona

We know. It's not a country. But according to Guinness World Records, Yuma, Arizona, is the sunniest city on earth with, on average, 11 hours of uninterrupted sunlight per day. That's more than 4,000 hours a year, people.

Swakopmund, Namibia

Least Rainy: Namibia

This country wins for the least amount of rainfall. The port town of Swakopmund sees less than an inch of precipitation a year, and daytime temps average in the 70s.

Beaches in Cyprus
Simila Cyprus


Best Humidity Level: Cyprus

Climate scientists consider 50 percent relative humidity to be optimal weather conditions. (You might know it as the sweet spot where your hair isn't frizzy and your skin isn't dry.) This island nation can get pretty hot, but the air remains nicely arid and the ocean setting means plenty of cool breezes.

Best Snow: Japan

If you're the type who wants to hit the slopes every day, Japan is your place. The country's geographic location, position in the ocean, mountainous elevation and proximity to cold air from northeast Asia make it one of the snowiest locations on the planet.

Rain forests in Brazil

Most Tropical: Brazil

If rainforests are your thing--think warm temps with lots of moisture in the air--beeline for Brazil, which wins as the most tropical place on the planet, with 1,844,402 square miles of rainforest.

Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa

Least Windy: Democratic Republic of Congo

Smack in the center of Africa, this place boasts some of the lowest average wind speeds, making it one of the calmest places in the world (at least from a weather perspective).

Roque de los Muchachose Observatory, Canary Islands

Starriest Skies: Canary Islands

Venture off the coast of West Africa for the starriest sky in the entire world. Roque de los Muchachose Observatory in Caldera de Taburiente National Park has an extensive fleet of telescopes, making it a prime spot for stargazing.

Iceland

Cleanest Air: Iceland

Here, low population density, an abundance of forests (which act as natural air filters) and strict air pollution regulations combine to give you the world's cleanest air. Plus: Björk.
