Mexico has long been the winter destination, the place where we can escape from the cold to sun ourselves on beautiful white sand beaches and soak up the vitamin D. But did you know that Mexico is also a fantastic place to travel to in the summer months? With low hotel and accommodation prices, great fishing, excellent surfing and fun festivals, Mexico makes for a memorable summer destination getaway.
Low Accommodation Rates
The summer months in Mexico are considered low season, especially on the coast. This makes for the perfect time to take advantage of low hotel and vacation rental rates. Skip the crowds and take advantage of great discounts at many luxury vacation rental properties and hotels.
Summer in Mexico brings exciting festivals that typically only take place from late June through the end of September. The Guelaguetza festival in Oaxaca takes place on two consecutive Mondays in July. It is a beautiful cultural event that goes back hundreds of years. Dancers and musicians wear clothing representative of their state, decorated with ribbons and bells.
Lush & Green
Although the summer is considered rainy season, this simply means that it may rain. Many days see only an hour or two of showers, with the remains of the day hot and sunny. This results in lush, green and tropical landscapes. This is a beautiful sight, especially in Bahias de Huatulco, with the stunning contrast of the Pacific Ocean against the Sierra Madre Mountains.
Summer in Mexico brings the best waves around, especially along the Oaxaca coast. Surfers head to the shores seeking the ride of a lifetime. Grab your board and head to the many great surf spots from Barra de La Cruz all the way to Puerto Escondido. Cowabunga!
Abundance of Eco-Tourism
In the summer, Mexico offers spectacular animal migrations. Sea turtles begin to nest along the coast, heading up to the beaches to lay their eggs. It’s truly an amazing sight. Many beaches protect sea turtles and offer release programs where you can let the baby turtles into the ocean once they hatch. An experience you will never forget!
