march will be hot - not the hottest [ depends on your 'heat' tolerance potential... it's already touching the 30's C ]
jungles will have them creepy crawlies all year round [leeches] - but them mama creepies emerge during the monsoon.

March is still "season", not highest, but high. I used to go in April, as the prices dropped a notch as the temperature rose.

Given that you are heading for a tropical location where is is hot all year, March is OK.

It is hot in kerala now. I just returned from Cochin. It is going to get hotter as this month progresses. Since I have lived in Hyderabad, I dont feel it that much. Like someone said, it depends on your tolerance to heat.

But to answer your question, it is definitely not a bad month to be in Kerala, particularly the jungle/mountains.

I was there last week, and it had already hit the mid thirties and it's incredibly humid, way hotter than it is here in Delhi. No idea what temperature it was on the day we left, but the forecast was for 36 degrees feeling like 47 degrees.

Coming from the UK and not being a lover of hot sticky weather I found it pretty uncomfortable to be outside, although the open section of the houseboat did have fans which made a big difference.

The difference that I find, coming from a place that is both hotter and even more humid, in the summer months, is the intensity of the sun in Kerala.

Pack the sunglasses; pack the sunhat; pack the sunblock. Stuff I don't much bother about in Chennai
