The dry season period from December to April spans the busiest months for tourism, with colder weather driving beach-lovers down from the north to Mexico's warm, sunny climes. The coastal areas are best experienced during this winter period, although they can be rainy between May and October. If you do happen to be traveling during the summer, the interior and northern regions of Mexico are the best places to avoid rain and soak up the heat. Plan your trip in the high-altitude mountainous areas, which tend to be cooler and more tolerable during the summer months. November may be one of the best months to experience Mexico, straddling the space between the wet and dry seasons and giving you the opportunity to visit Mexico at a less popular time. Another benefit of visiting in early November is the opportunity to participate in Day of the Dead festivities! If your visit falls during the rainy season, there's still plenty to do. Tour the great museums in Mexico City—you can view Mayan artifacts in the National Museum of Anthropology, or check out the Frida Kahlo Museum to admire the work of this famous national artist. The Riviera Maya offers excellent opportunities for cave exploring, another great activity on rainy days!
