Best Time To Travel To Mexico
The best time to travel to Mexico is during the drier season from December to April. Although this may be the country’s busy season, one can avoid the hurricane seasons on both coasts. Mexico is a long country with a variety of landscapes. From mountainous regions with snow-capped volcanoes to desert to jungle to coastline, each region offers different weather patterns and plenty to do and see! Whether you want to go whale watching, diving, mountain biking, hiking, surfing, jungle trekking, or maybe you just want to see the butterfly migration, there’s always a time of year for you to visit Mexico.
When visiting solely for your train journey, May to June and September to November are the best months to ride the famed El Chepe train which offers views of a blooming flower-filled Copper Canyon during this time. Wonderful festivals and holidays not to miss are Semana Santa, Cinco de Mayo, and Día de Los Muertos as well as the spring and fall equinoxes at Chichen Itza.
Keep in mind, July and August tend to be the hottest months across the country and often seen as the low season throughout the country in terms of tourism, but there are often discounts during this time of year. March and April tend to be more expensive months due to the influx of spring breakers and beach-holiday goers but offer the best weather in terms of the lower heat index and less humidity.
