Best time to visit Mexico
- Mexico is a huge country with different climatic zones and seasons. In general, the dry season from November to April is the best time to visit Mexico, as it offers pleasant temperatures, sunny days and minimal rainfall. However, this is also peak season for tourism, so you can expect higher prices and larger crowds at popular sites.
- If you want to save money and avoid the crowds, you can visit Mexico during the shoulder season from July to August or during the low season from May to June or September to October. Shoulder season is still warm and dry in some areas like the Yucatan or Baja California, but it’s also the start of hurricane season on the Caribbean and Pacific coasts. Low season is hot and humid in most areas of Mexico, but also offers lower prices and smaller crowds at the beach.
- If you want to experience Mexican culture and traditions, you can visit Mexico during some of its famous festivals or holidays. Some of the most popular is Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in late October or early November, Guelaguetza (Oaxacan Cultural Festival) in July, Cinco de Mayo (May Day) in May, or Semana Santa (Holy Week) before Easter.
