When trying to decide on the best time to visit Mexico, you first have to consider what kind of vacation you'd like to have. The best time of year to go greatly depends on your budget and the activities you'd like to pursue. The main things to consider are: Cost - Low season is from the day after Easter to mid-December. If you don't mind the heat during the summer months, booking your trip in the off season will get you reduced rates for most Cabo hotels and resorts throughout Mexico. Similarly, booking flights midweek will also result in cheaper fares. If cost is a big factor on when you'd like to go, those are the best times. Weather - Mexico has warm weather year round, but May to September are the months of highest rainfall and highest temperatures almost everywhere. August and September tend to be especially rainy, with hurricane season on the east and west coasts. Coastal areas, such as Mazatlan, are hotter in the summer months than more interior regions. In general, the most pleasant months to visit Mexico are October through May. Activities and Events - The many regions in Mexico celebrate a variety of exciting cultural events, such as Mazatlan's Carnaval, Dia de Los Muertos, Cinco de Mayo and many other festivals in every month. Another event that is time sensitive is whale watching, a unique activity that can only be enjoyed in the fall. These events are sprinkled throughout the year so if you're looking for a good time to visit Mexico, you could try researching when certain events occur to help you make your decision.
