Mexico Travel Guide

When to go to Mexico?

If you are planning a vacation in Mexico, you have to know the main travel season of Mexico, they are only two; the peak season initiates approximately in December 20 and it persists during the Easter; in various places it initiates as early as mid of November.

The off season is from the day after Easter to mid of December, and the prices may fall 20% to 50%; in the most visited beach resorts with Mexican travelers, such as Acapulco, prices will revert to high season during July and August, this is the traditional national summer vacation season.

The rates in interior places rarely vary from peak to off season, but may rise radically during the weeks of Easter and Christmas. Taxco and Pátzcuaro elevate prices during their famous Easter-week celebrations. In Isla Mujeres and Playa del Carmen, on the Yucatán Peninsula, peak season begins earlier than in the rest of the country and includes the month of August, when several foreign visitors and local families arrive.


Mexico has also a pair of principal climate seasons: the rainy season from May to mid-October and the dry season from mid-October to April. The rainy season can be of little effect in the dry, northern region of the country. Southern regions typically have tropical showers.

The downpours commence around 4pm or 5pm and last not many hours, although these rainfalls can come on abruptly and be relatively strong, they frequently finish just as rapidly and cool off the air for the nightfall.

Yucatán Peninsula and in most coastal areas has hot temperatures during June, July, and August, although, temperatures rise only into the mid-80s to 90°F (mid-20s to 32°C). Most of coastal Mexico experiences temperatures in the 80s°F (20s°C) in the hottest months. The northern states that border the United States experience very high summer temperatures.

Another very important aspect is the elevation; for instance, elevated cities such as Mexico City and San Cristóbal de las Casas can be unexpectedly cold; however, temperatures can drop close to freezing at night in winter even in San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, which are at minor elevations.
