Mexico: Know when to go!

Mexico’s weather is enjoyable year-round, but October to May tend to be the most pleasant months to visit. From May to September Mexico’s weather is very hot and humid, particularly in southern Mexico. During the winter months, of December to February, inland Mexico weather temperatures can reach freezing. In general, visitors to Mexico can expect hot, humid weather along the coastal plains and drier temperatures at higher inland destinations such as Guadalajara and Mexico City, for example.

When planning a trip to Mexico please keep in mind that the peak travel periods are the week before Easter – which is referred to as Semana Santa – as well as the Christmas and New Year holiday travel periods. Travelers who are looking to avoid jam-packed locations should avoid Mexico's southern coast between July and September – which is peak season for North American student vacationers and peak holiday months for foreign visitors. Cancun is inundated with students on Spring Break during the months of February, March and early April. more

The U.S. reported yesterday the first death of a United States Citizen with H1N1 Influenza A. Officials say the female school teacher was in her early thirties and had several other threatening health problems. She did have the H1N1 virus, but health experts are hesitant to say that is why she died.

In spite of yesterday's reported death, health officials are saying the H1N1 virus is not as big a threat as originally perceived.
