MX - Mexico

When to go:

The climate in Mexico varies according to latitude and above all altitude. The northern regions receive much less rainfall than the southern ones. It must be said, however, that the rains in the south of the country are short-lived.

Those who go on vacation in the Yucatan and in the south of the country must take into consideration the risk of running into rains and possibly hurricanes in the period June-October. The winds usually blow strong between September and November.

The hotels charge high season rates between Christmas and Easter. The Christmas and Easter holidays can be expensive for those who plan a visit to the highland cities such as Taxco and P√°tzcuar.

Outside this period, prices may be lower by a good 20% with maximum peaks of up to 50%, but in July-August they again undergo a surge, especially in the major seaside resorts. July and August are extremely hot months in the north of the country and also in coastal areas where an increase in the humidity is observed.

Note that Mexico has 4 time zones within it:

Northwest (UTC-8): Baja California
Pacific Zone (UTC-7): Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Nayarit, Sinaloa, Sonora
Central zone (UTC-6): the rest of the country, with the exception of Quintana Roo
Southeast area (UTC-5): Quintana Roo
Mexico observes daylight saving time in line with what the United States of America did before 2007, from the first Sunday of April to last Sunday in October. Some states in Mexico do not observe daylight saving time (like some US states), and this must be borne in mind when schedules must be respected, especially those at airports.
