Best Time to Go to Mexico

If you're traveling to the Caribbean or Pacific coasts, beware of hurricane season, which can bring storms any time between June and November. (If you're willing to take the risk, you may find reduced rates at resorts.) Winter and spring are popular times to visit for their dry weather and pleasant temperatures. Rates often go up around popular holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Independence Day and Day of the Dead.

Mexico on a Budget

Mexico is a very budget-friendly destination, especially if you take the time to explore less touristy areas away from the coasts. Public transit is an affordable option in many parts of the country; if you end up in a taxi instead, agree on a fare with the driver before departing. To save a few pesos on meals, seek out street food and goodies from local markets (most restaurants serve tourists and are priced accordingly). Finally, make purchases in pesos rather than U.S. dollars to get the best possible prices -- and don't be afraid to haggle.
