In my WIP, an alien only has a few moments to choose a place on Earth to crash before losing all of her memories. Her species is deathly allergic to snow, they don't do good in rocky climates (or any thing high up), but most of all they need a place that's hot.

The way I've written it now it takes place in a desert (near an ocean), but from research, the desert, although it doesn't snow, get's way too cold at night.

Are there any alternatives to the desert? I was thinking a savanna, but I thought I would get some opinions on the checklist:

1) Flat ground (like grass or sand or dirt)
2) close to sea level
3) Hot all the time
