A fascinating mix of old and new, Mexico City is home to both thousand year-old ruins and gleaming skyscrapers: ancient grandeur meets edgy modernity.
To see the city’s layered history, take a stroll through Zócalo, the world’s second largest public square, bordered by the baroque Catedral Metropolitana. Or, visit the Aztec ruins of Templo Mayer to discover artefacts discovered 450 years after the temple’s demise. We also recommend taking a boat down the historic canals, the perfect way to soak up the city’s beauty and bustle.
Mexico City’s dry season has both a warm and cooler period. November to February is cooler, although sun still rides high in the sky and daytime temperatures are comfortable, while March through May are warmer, with May being the hottest month.
We love visiting Mexico City in October when the rainy weather has passed, pollution levels are low, and the city is at its most green; or between February and April, when the weather is lovely but hasn’t reached the hot, humid levels of summer.
Around May or June rainy weather starts in Mexico City, continuing until September and sometimes into October. Rainstorms usually fall in the afternoon before leaving the evening dry and cool. Hurricane season is from June to October or November.View all hotels in Mexico City
