Climate and Weather of Mexico

When one thinks of Mexico, one automatically visualizes the sun and beaches - and this is in no way wrong because this country, settled between the United States, Guatemala and Belize, has a pleasant and sunny weather. The country is crossed by what is known as the Tropic of Cancer and it is possible to distinguish two main trends within the climate: a temperate one, with very cold winters in the north as well as a tropical climate in the south with overall constant temperatures. There are also two seasons in Mexico; a dry season between November and May and a rainy season between June and mid-October. During this period of the season, it usually only rains in the late afternoon and for only an hour or so.

The Climate of the High Mountain Area

Even though the peaks of the highest mountains are still covered in snow, this area is surprisingly located within the scorching Mexican territory. The plateau of Anahuac and Chiapas on the other hand, enjoy mild temperatures while the Yucatan Peninsula, not far from Bélise and other closeby cities such as Belmopan and Corozal, suffer from extreme heat.

The Climate on the Caribbean Coast of Mexico

The Caribbean coast and its beautiful beaches following the example of Cancun, benefits from a pleasant climate with high, but bearable temperatures. Again, one must be careful though, because this part of Mexico is affected by hurricanes in both September and October.

The Climate in the Mexico City Area

When we think of the climate in Mexico, we naturally imagine wonderful heat and endless sunshine. This is greatly true for the most part of the country, however, there are areas where the temperatures can be quite cool.
