Essentially built on a lake, Mexico City is not just the capital of a nation. It’s the cultural centre and bustling metropolis of Mexico. The colonial-era architecture and modern buildings are an eclectic jumble, sometimes settling into the river’s tentative soil at unique angles and other times separated by ancient canals.
Mexico City offers more museums than any other city in the world, but it’s also known for its roaring cantinas and unique murals. While you’re in town, head down to the corner store for some tacos, fruit salad, and tamales. Also visit the Museum of Light, the Museum of Tequila and Mezcal, and the Museum of Antique Toys. There’s so much waiting for you when you book flights to Mexico City.
Mexico City’s best weather occurs in the autumn and winter, usually between October and February. The rainy season is still finishing up in October and early November with around 67mm of precipitation. Late November sees the beginning of the dry season, which lasts until around May. Daytime temperatures hover between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius, dipping as low as 6 degrees at night.Shoulder Season:
July and August are considered the shoulder seasons. While you may need a raincoat, there’s very little risk of a hurricane. Temperatures are mild, and attractions are all open because this is when many native Mexicans travel.Off Season:
With a combination of both rain and heat, May, June, and September are the perfect months for a light, waterproof jacket and rain boots. March and April are the warmest months with highs in the upper 20s. September is peak hurricane season, and March is one of the hottest times of the year.
