Best time to visit Mexico City:

Dry Season (November to April): This period is considered the best time to visit Mexico City. The weather is generally dry with mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine. It's perfect for exploring the city's attractions, historic sites, museums, and enjoying outdoor activities.

Rainy Season (May to October): This season brings heavier rainfall, particularly from June to September. While it can rain heavily, the showers are usually short-lived and followed by sunshine. Despite the rain, this period can still be a good time to visit if you're looking for fewer tourists and discounted accommodations.

Consider these factors when planning your visit:

Festivals and Events: Mexico City hosts various cultural events and festivals throughout the year. For example, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations in late October/early November are unique cultural experiences.

High Tourist Season: The dry season, especially from December to February, is the peak tourist season. It's when crowds are larger, and prices for accommodations and attractions might be higher.

Weather Preferences: If you prefer milder temperatures and less chance of rain, the dry season is preferable. However, if you don't mind occasional showers and want to experience the city with fewer tourists, the rainy season might be suitable.
