Make the most of your time in Mexico.
Mexico is a vast and surprising destination. Yes, it has beautiful beaches and endless stretches of Pacific and Caribbean coast—but it also boasts 35,000 archaeological sites, 10% of the world’s biodiversity, and more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in the Americas. It's a cultural melting pot of more than 50 indigenous ethnic groups, with endless tradition (and endless incredible cuisine). There's a side of Mexico to suit every traveler—let us help you find yours.When is the best time to visit?
Seasons in Mexico vary from region to region. On the Yucatán Peninsula
, December-April is when the weather is warm and dry. It's also the most crowded and expensive time to go. We recommend May-June, when crowds have thinned and the rainy season has yet to arrive. The same goes for Mexico's Pacific coast. For other parts of the country, like Puebla
or Mexico City
, May-October is the wet season—you can expect rain almost every day. Ask your specialist for more on what to expect during your visit. Learn moreWhere should you go?
For ancient history, you can't do better than the Yucatán—archaeological sites here include the iconic Chichen Itzá
, Ek Balam
, and many more. This is an especially good area for a self-drive tour. If you're interested in community-based activities, engage in local culture with village visits to Chunhuhub
or Nuevo Durango
is world famous for its culture, cuisine, and world-famous surfing beaches—and if culture is what you're after, you'll also want to put Mexico City, Puebla, and other colonial cities such as San Miguel de Allende
on your list. Chiapas, San Luis Potosi,
are access points to Mexico's natural world—think waterfalls, rivers, and deep jungle. The biosphere reserves such as Sian Ka’an
are also outdoor adventure destinations.How many days do you need?
Have we mentioned yet that Mexico is a big country? The more days you can spend, the better. With 5 days, stick to Mexico City and Puebla, or pick another region to immerse in—Oaxaca, Chiapas, or Veracruz make good stand-alone trips. Ten days means you can comfortably visit the Yucatán, combining it with either Campeche
and Riviera Maya
or Chiapas. A trip through the colonial cities would also be possible in 10 days.
The lucky travelers with 2 weeks (or more) will get to experience the diversity that defines Mexico, visiting several regions with different ecosystems and ethnic groups. Start in Baja California Sur and make your way to Chepe,
pair Puerto Vallarta
or dive into Oaxaca, Puebla, and Mexico City.
