March

Like January and February, March in Mexico offers pleasant weather and abundant opportunities for exploration. Still a great time to visit the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza or Monte Albán, bask in the sunshine along the pristine beaches of Cancun or Puerto Vallarta, and immerse yourself in the lively celebrations of Semana Santa (Holy Week). March is also an excellent time for outdoor activities like hiking, zip-lining, and exploring Mexico's diverse ecosystems, from the thriving jungles to the crystal-clear cenotes.

April

The beautiful sunny weather continues in April in Mexico. Explore the impressive Mayan ruins of Tulum or Coba and soak up the sun on the beaches of Playa del Carmen or Los Cabos. It's an ideal time for snorkelling or diving in the stunning coral reefs of Cozumel or exploring the natural wonders of Copper Canyon.

Expand

May

Explore the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza or venture into the deep jungles of Palenque. Relax on the pristine beaches of Playa del Carmen or Tulum and enjoy water activities like snorkelling or surfing. Join in with the vibrant Cinco de Mayo celebrations, highlighting Mexican culture and history. May is also a great time for eco-adventures and exploring biosphere reserves.

June

In June, Mexico experiences warm weather with regional variations. Coastal areas such as Cancun and Puerto Vallarta boast balmy temperatures perfect for beach activities and water sports. June marks the beginning of the rainy season in many parts of Mexico, including the Yucatan Peninsula and Pacific Coast. Expect occasional showers and increased humidity. In contrast, central and northern regions, like Mexico City and Guadalajara, enjoy milder temperatures and lower chances of rain.

Expand

July

July is part of Mexico’s rainy season. Beaches are humid and muggy so if you choose to travel at this time, make sure to plan ways to escape the humidity. However, there is a silver lining to visiting Mexico in July. Due to the less-than-perfect weather, you may find that prices for accommodations and other travel-related services tend to be more affordable. Visit Oaxaca to attend the Guelaguetza festival in July.

Expand

August

The hottest month of the year in some parts of Mexico, if you’re visiting at this time, plan water sports and beach activities to cool off. The Yucatan Peninsula and Pacific Coast have warm temperatures with occasional showers and high humidity. Central Mexico encounters warm temperatures with intermittent rainfall. Northern Mexico has hot and dry weather, while the Baja California Peninsula enjoys warm and dry conditions.

Expand

September

In September, expect wet weather in Mexico. Pack a rain jacket and water-resistant shoes. It's the slowest month for tourism, resulting in reduced hotel and travel prices. Take advantage of deals from high-end resorts. Maximize your time with city exploration, beach getaways, ruins tours, and museum visits. Maybe celebrate Mexican Independence Day in September in one of the major cities. Embrace the varied experiences Mexico offers during this time of the year.

Expand

October

: In October, Mexico's weather varies, with some regions still experiencing rain as the rainy season continues. However, temperatures gradually decrease, making it more comfortable to explore. October is ideal for city visits and major attractions due to milder weather. Enjoy sightseeing, whether it's natural or cultural attractions, as rain becomes less frequent and humidity drops, allowing for easier exploration and participation in activities.

Expand

November

November is highly recommended for visiting Mexico, as it coincides with the vibrant Day of the Dead celebrations (Nov 1-2). Witness ancestral tributes, picnics, and all-night vigils honoring the souls. The festivities blend a macabre touch with candy and skeleton figurines. Enjoy pleasant weather and exciting celebrations. Look for affordable flights and explore popular cities like Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Cancun during the off-season.

Expand

December

In December, Mexico's climate varies across regions. The north enjoys mild temperatures, while the south experiences higher temperatures. Additionally, there is little to no rainfall between December and April, making it an ideal time to visit. Take advantage of the fine weather to explore vibrant cities and spend a weekend in a beach town. Remember to pack a jacket or scarf as cool evenings are common throughout the country during this time of year.
