When to travel to Mexico
Mexico enjoys beautiful sunshine with little seasonal variation. The most popular months to visit are December through to May when the islands experience less rain, heat and humidity, and days are pleasant, sunny and dry. June through to November are the hottest months and generally when tropical storms and rain is most likely to occur. Mexico’s climate varies from tropical to temperate, according to altitude, winds and the Pacific Ocean currents. The Yucatán Peninsula, housing Cancún and low-lying areas of the south, enjoy a hot, humid tropical climate, while at higher altitudes the weather is temperate.
Coastal regions receive most of the rainfall during the rainy season (May to October), but the rest of the country is generally dry. The east and west coasts of Mexico have higher risk of tropical storms during June to November.
Things to see and do
Take a trip to one of the many local markets to get a glimpse of the voracious silver trade, the perfect place to pick up souvenirs and a great opportunity to explore the culture of this incredible country a little deeper. The bars of Cancún and Playa Del Carmen are world-famous for being electric and atmospheric night spots. Sink a margarita or tequila at sundown to the sound of guitars and enjoy the fantastic ambience.
There is no shortage of activities. Whether you want to bike ride along the Cuale River, whale watch while the sun sets, sail on one of the many gay-day cruises or simply relax in one of the beach clubs along the bay, Puerto Vallarta ticks all the boxes.
