How busy is mid January usually? Southern part of the island

How are the crowds mid to late January? I guess I should ask how warm it might be on average? 

Thanks

Mid January is pretty quiet time everywhere in the archipelago, not just in the south of the island. All the Christmas/New Year holiday makers are back to their jobs, making Money to come back again over the Easter break. Most tourists are simply the ones not having kids (attending the school in their home country) and not having a 9-5 jobs or other commitments.  

How warm? Average 25C, dropping down under 20C overnight. Days are quite short (same in the UK) and that's usually the only thing that reminds me the winter. To put this another way, it feels like a good summer in the UK. Wearing shorts and T-shirt, plus jumper for the evening. You can also check the Weather section, especially the January 2019 & January 2020.

Thanks. I'm leaning towards November but saw some interesting places for January at good prices. If it's quiet I won't need to rush and book . Or at least I can wait to see what's up with flights [Image: confused.png]

 One of the things I love about Fuerteventura is that even in mid winter it’s light until 6pm / 6.30pm. Here in Scotland it’s dark at 3.30pm.....in fact many days it never really gets light! Slightly better down south ofcourse but not that much! This January in Fuerte the Weather was very good, in fact it appears as though it’s been a really good winter. Cant  wait to be back a week on Saturday! Cool Cool Cool

Price wise, January should be cheaper.
If you like to swim in the ocean, go for November, the water will be warmer than at the beginning of the year. 🏊 🌊🏖️

That means it'll be windy. Might not be a positive
