Mexico’s climate varies across the country and is modified primarily by the altitude, and proximity to the coastline. The coastline enjoys warm tropical climate with rainy humid summers.

May marks the start of rainy season, but it is not a bad time to travel to Mexico, the beach season is still on till the end of month and hurricanes haven’t come yet. The ground isn’t too wet, so hiking is available. May also marks a considerable increase of plankton organisms in the nearby waters, and hence white sharks congregation who come to feast on their favourite delicacy. The start of rainy season results in the abundance of various insects, which locals consume as food, so you’ll have a chance of exotic food experience.

The peak of the rainy season falls on the warmest months in a year, July is the hottest month. Besides, rainy season coincides with the season of hurricanes, which starts in June, and continues well into October, and in some areas to November. The hurricanes typically occur in the coastal cities along the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. In June it’s no longer convenient to rest in the sun—the beach season is over, and generally, Mexican summer sees fewer tourists than previous months. The soils are soaked, and it’s difficult to make your way to certain remote areas and explore treasures of ancient Mayan or Aztec culture. On the other hand, the season has its benefits: for example, the weather ensures excellent surfing. Also, most tropical fruit are harvested in summer. So, one can’t say this season is bad for visiting Mexico.
