The Weather in Mexico
Depending on where you go in Mexico, you'll experience a wide range of climates. Generally speaking, the country has two distinct seasons: a dry season from November to May and a wet season from June to October. When is the best time to go to Mexico? It depends on what you want to do and where you want to go!
From November to April, the weather is dry and sunny. Temperatures range from the low to mid-80s Fahrenheit, which is the best time to visit for beachgoers and people who want to do water sports.
Peak season runs from December to January and also Easter week. Cancun, Tulum, and Cozumel, as well as the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula, can get very busy during this peak season, so if you want to avoid crowds, it's best to go during the shoulder season (November or April).
June–October is considered the rainy season. During the rainy season, plants are in bloom and many animals are active, giving you the highest chance of spotting wildlife. The Oaxaca coast, Chiapas, and the Yucatan Peninsula are great places to see sea turtles during their nesting season from May to October. Whale sharks, the world's largest fish, can be spotted off the coast of Cancun from mid-May to mid-September.
If you want to see Mexico's cities and cultural sites, the best time to go is during the dry season (November to May). The days are sunny and pleasant, and the weather is cooler, which makes it easier to walk around and see the sights. But keep in mind that popular places like Mexico City, Guadalajara, and San Miguel de Allende can still be crowded during peak season.
Overall, Mexico is a place to visit any time of the year because it has something to offer in every season. Before you plan a trip, it's important to check the weather and busiest travel times for your specific destination.
