Mexico – Best time to go

Best time to visit Mexico

December to April is generally considered dry season in Mexico, although things vary from location to location. Mexico’s two coasts offer quite different conditions – the Pacific is a haven for surfers, while the Caribbean is generally more serene. Puerto Vallarta’s whale watching season runs from from mid-December to the end of March.
