Mexico Holiday Vacation

Mexico may evoke images of sultry sandy beaches and summer getaways, but do not overlook the richness of a Mexico vacation in mild weather as well. As November gets underway, it is a perfect time to plan a holiday beach vacation in Mexico whether you plan to fly solo, with a small group, or with the whole family.

Holiday travel in Mexico

Christmas and other winter holidays in Mexico tend to meld recognizable holiday festivities with local flavor. Do not be surprised to find cheerfully decorated streets complete with nativity scenes, Christmas trees, and sometimes even synthetic snow, alongside vendors preparing local favorites like tamales and warm tropical punch. In other words, there are some enjoyable benefits to vacationing in Mexico for the holidays.

For those itching to escape the snow, Mexico’s weather is more mild though there are variations – naturally, more northern destinations and spots in the mountains are cooler than the more southern locales. Playa del Carmen, on the Yucatan peninsula, sees its annual low temperatures of about 74 degrees in January. In Cabo San Lucas, farther north, January temperatures only reach about 66 degrees.

Mexican travel destinations also tend to offer plenty of family-friendly events. Playa del Carmen kicks of December with the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival. Mexico City hosts Christmas festivities from early December through early January, even installing an ice rink for skating in the Zocalo. You can find anything from religious feasts to a radish night to patronize during the holiday seasons.
