Best travel time Mexico
Mexico is a fantastic and beautiful country where you can enjoy a wonderful climate and a very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere! It is therefore not surprising that this country has stolen our hearts. After our trip to this fantastic country we often get the question of what the best travel time for Mexico is. And we are giving a clear answer to this question today. Read all about the best travel period and climate in Mexico here.
Best travel time Mexico
If you are going to look for the best travel time in Mexico, you will soon discover that you have warm temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius all year round. In order to book a sunny, warm holiday, you don’t really have to go to this fixed fact. What you should pay attention to is when the rainy season falls. This is from May to October. During this period there can be quite a bit of precipitation, even if the temperatures are pleasant. So the best time to visit Mexico is from November to April.
Although the high season for Mexico is mainly seen from November to April, the busiest months are mainly December and January. This is because many European tourists come to hibernate. The spring break period also brings extra tourists who come to celebrate especially in cities like Cancun. In addition, the period around Easter is also busy because the Mexicans then go on holiday with the whole family(Semana Santa).
The best travel time for Mexico is different for everyone and depends on how long you want to stay. But we recommend the months of November, February, March and April. This is because the number of tourists is a bit lower, which means that the price for a hotel room and flight is lower. Always look up when springbreak falls because this also creates extra crowds! Easter also creates an extra influx of people. But because of the nice atmosphere that this creates on the beaches and in the streets, you can also see this as a plus. It’s an experience. Just like the period of Dia de Los Muertos (in November), which you want to experience once in a lifetime.
Some fun dates
Mexico is a very colorful country and they absolutely know how to party here! So experiencing one of the big holidays can be an absolute highlight of your holiday. On 1 and 2 November you can experience the world famous holiday Dia de los Muertos. Which is the feast of the dead. Everyone is dressed up nicely and is celebrated from morning to evening. The best place to celebrate Dia de los Muertos is in Mexico City. Another holiday that is fun to experience is Easter. This is because then almost all Mexican families go to the coast together which creates a very unique but cozy atmosphere. We celebrated this holiday with some Mexican friends in Puerto Vallarta and that made for a wonderful experience that will always stay with us! The flower festival in Guanajuato is also highly recommended!
Best Travel Time Mexico?
In addition to the best travel time for Mexico, you also have the duration of the trip. And this one is different for everyone, but we believe that you should stay in Mexico for at least 2 weeks as you will have to get used to the hour difference for several days. And because it’s a long flight. When travelling through Yucatan (which is done by most tourists), we recommend 3 weeks. This way you can visit all the cities and Mayan temples in a quiet way.
Some people travel to spot a specific species that you can hardly spot anywhere else. And in Mexico, this is the whale shark. Unfortunately, it is not available all year round and therefore you have to go from May to September. Of course, this is no guarantee of seeing this whale shark. But it does increase the chances.
