Best time to visit León:

Spring (March to May): Spring is a delightful time to visit Guanajuato. The weather is pleasant, with mild temperatures ideal for exploring the city's historic streets, museums, and cultural sites. It's also a good time for outdoor activities and enjoying the blooming flowers.

Summer (June to August): Summers in Guanajuato can be warm, with occasional rainfall. While it might be a bit hot, it's still a good time for exploring if you don't mind the warmer temperatures. The International Cervantino Festival, a renowned cultural event, usually takes place in October, bringing art, music, and performances to the city.

Autumn (September to November): Autumn offers cooler temperatures compared to summer, making it another suitable time for visiting. The fall foliage in certain areas might provide picturesque landscapes.

Winter (December to February): Winters in Guanajuato are mild, with cooler temperatures but generally pleasant weather. The city is beautifully decorated during the holiday season, and it's a good time to explore without the crowds.

Consider the International Cervantino Festival in October if you're interested in experiencing a vibrant cultural event. Otherwise, spring and autumn generally offer mild temperatures and pleasant weather for exploring Guanajuato's attractions without the heat of summer or the colder nights of winter.
