When To Go To Mexico?

 
Although Mexico can be visited at any time of the year, due to its vast size and resulting differences in climate across the country, the best time to go will depend on where you plan to go on your Mexico travels and the activities that you plan to include on your Mexico tour.
 
The optimum time to visit is generally between December and April, the driest months over most of the country. December to February tend to be the coolest months, with the wet season beginning in southern and central Mexico in May and lasting until October. Hurricane season, which can affect the Caribbean Coast, runs from June to November. July and August see high temperatures throughout the country and rain on the Pacific Coast.
