In the southern part of North America is Mexico, one of the world's most visited destinations. Travelers can enough of this fantastic country for several reasons; its rich culture and history are evident through colorful colonial cities like Oaxaca, tropical beaches such as Cancun and Puerto Vallarta, and vibrant nightlife in Playa Del Carmen.

When some people hear Mexico, they immediately think of danger, but in fact, some places to go are safe for tourists once they take the necessary precautions.

When Is The Best Time To Visit Mexico

The best time to visit Mexico entirely depends on what tourist attractions you want to see and how you want to spend your time.

If you're looking to hit the beaches and soak up the sun, you should visit Mexico in the winter, also known as the dry season, from November to April, with temperatures ranging between 20°C and 30°C. But, if you're visiting places like Cancun and Tulum, you should book your accommodation as soon as you know the dates you're traveling, especially if you plan on staying in a resort as the influx of tourists drastically increases.

However, if you want to experience traditional Mexican festivals like the Day of the Dead Festival, then October and November are ideal months to visit.

Bear in mind that Mexico's hurricane season runs through the off-season from June until November in the summer. Although the chance of one occurring is unlikely, they have occurred in the past. For those who travel on a budget, this is an excellent time to travel to Mexico as everything is much more affordable, from day trips to Chichén Itzá to flights to expensive vacation spots like Mexico City.
