Kouklia Snake Park has an interesting collection of Cypriot snakes including the Blunt Nosed Viper, Montpellier and Whip Snake. As well as snakes, its also got lizards and chameleons. All in all, well worth a visit.

July is probably the hottest month of the year in Cyprus. Wall-to-wall sunshine is pretty much a certainty – though sometimes the high humidity does lead to mist on the coasts or cloud over the mountains.
This is a month to take it easy. Anything involving physical effort is very difficult – after 8am the temperature soars and it stays right up there until early evening. Even the sea is very warm to swim in. This is the month to get your tan firmly sorted!
