Climate and Weather in Mexico

Mexico weather varies greatly depending on the geographical region. The northern states experience dry and arid weather, with temperatures often reaching high levels during the day. In contrast, the central and southern regions enjoy a climate with more precipitation, higher humidity and mild to warm temperatures throughout the year. The tropical areas are characterized by high temperatures, abundant rainfall and even very humid weather in some areas.

The weather in Mexico can also vary from season to season. During summer, temperatures can reach up to 40°C (104°F) in some of the coastal cities such as Acapulco, Tulum, Playa del Carmen or Cancún, while winter is relatively mild with an average temperature of 16-17°C (60-62°F). In the mountainous regions and high elevations of Mexico City and  Oaxaca, you may find colder weather conditions due to their higher altitude.

Mexico is a large country that offers many different climates for tourists to explore and enjoy. A popular destination is Yucatán Peninsula which features a hot and humid subtropical climate all year long; the Pacific coast has pleasant weather most of the time with strong rains during autumn; and Mexico City enjoys spring-like weather year round due to its elevation above sea level.

Overall, Mexico is an ideal destination for travelers who want to experience a variety of different weather patterns without having to travel very far from home. Whether visiting during summer time or wintertime, you’ll be able to find plenty of sun and mild temperatures no matter where you are in this beautiful country.

Traveling to 🇲🇽 Mexico soon?

I recommend these travel resources for Mexico that I personally use:

🏨 Hotels: I have found that Expedia and consistently have the best deals on hotels and resorts in Mexico. If you prefer to stay at a vacation rental, check VRBO that is usually cheaper than AirBnB’s added fees!

✈️ Flights: To find the best flight deals to Mexico, I always use Kayak. Remember to subscribe to their price alerts for the travel dates you want. Another great alternative for flight deals is Expedia.

🚗 Rental Cars: I always use and highly recommend Discover Cars because it allows me to compare several car rental companies and view ratings on various factors such as overall value, pick-up procedure, agent efficiency, car condition, and total time taken.

🚙 Cancun Airport Transportation: For the fastest and easiest way to travel, I suggest arranging a private transfer with Cancun Airport Transportation. Honestly, no better way to travel from the airport to your hotel or resort.

🤿 Tours & Activities: For tours and activities in Mexico, I highly recommend using either Viator or GetYourGuide. These websites offer a full refund if you cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the tour, and they also provide excellent customer service in case of any issues.

🚨 Travel Insurance: I always suggest purchasing travel insurance as a precaution before traveling, especially after a recent accident in a taxi in Mexico. For short trips, I recommend Travel Insurance Master, whereas for digital nomads, Safety Wing is a better option.

📷 Best Camera for your trip: I always carry with me a GoPro, It’s light, compact, takes great video and pictures, and most importantly, it’s waterproof! You just can’t go wrong with one. If you are interested in higher quality video and photography, I always carry with me on my trips and highly recommend the Sony A7IV which I think is the best travel DSLR Camera out there.

☀️ Biodegradable Sunscreen: Remember to include a good sunscreen to protect yourself from the summer sun. I always use and suggest Sun Bum Sunscreen, which is vegan, reef-friendly, and cruelty-free.
