When to Wander: The Best Times to Visit Mexico

At Allianz, we believe that when you're planning the perfect vacation, timing is everything. This is especially true for a diverse and vast country like Mexico, with its unique blend of landscapes, culture, and climates. Whether you’re a sun-seeker, a history buff, an adventure lover or a wildlife enthusiast, choosing the right time to visit can enhance your experience tremendously. Here's our insider guide on the best times to visit Mexico to help you plan your dream trip.
Mexico is a year-round destination, but the dry season from November to April promises the most comfortable weather. This period sees less rain and more balmy temperatures. However, keep in mind that airfare and accommodation prices may be slightly higher due to increased demand. If you're looking for a good balance between pleasant weather and reasonable costs, late November is a sweet spot, falling right after the end of the heavy rain season and before the peak tourist season starts.
Mexico is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, especially those keen on marine life. The warm waters off both Mexican shorelines become home to migrating whales from December to March. Baja or the Pacific coast could offer you a sight of humpback, gray, or even the enigmatic blue whales on their epic ocean journeys. January and February are particularly good for spotting humpbacks off Puerto Vallarta.
  • Surfers are in for a treat in Mexico, with the Southern Ocean stirring up fantastic swells along Mexico's Pacific coastline all year long. However, experienced surfers may find the biggest and most consistent waves from May to October. Locations like the breezy Baja Peninsula, Nayarit, Barra de Nexpa, Troncones, and Puerto Escondido are particularly popular.

  • January is the best month to see migratory birds wintering in the jungles, lagoons, mangroves, wetlands, and mountains of the Pacific Coast. San Blas hosts the International Migratory Bird Festival in January, offering a unique spectacle for bird lovers.

  • Mexico is a land of vibrant festivals and events. From Candelaria (Candlemas) in February to Semana Santa (Holy Week) in March or April, and from Independence Day celebrations in September to Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) in November, Mexico offers a cultural feast all year round.
