The Ideal Weather
Sunny Mexico didn’t get this nickname by accident, this country’s weather is diverse but in most regions the default weather is sunny despite of the season. One of the most remarkable regions is the Mexican Caribbean where almost 300/365 days the sky is clear – perfect for taking a dip into the Sea!

If you’re seeking seaside relaxation, visiting Mexico during November is a great option as and the possibility of a hurricane entering is very low.
The Best Prices
November is right in the middle of Mexico’s off-season so you will most likely find some great deals in airfare, specially when travelling to the country’s most popular cities like Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, or Cancun. This applies for anticipated reservations and last-minute bookings.
When it comes to lodging, there are hundreds of great hotels and Airbnb’s that dramatically drop their prices due to low occupation, however, we recommend booking in advance to secure a low rate in the accommodation of your preference.
For ground transportation like private shuttles, buses and rental cars there is not much change in their rates between the off-season and the high season. Nevertheless, the experience of renting a car or hopping into a bus are definitely smoother as there are less crowds.
Restaurants, tours, and attractions have special offers to encourage travelers to try them during November. While it is not polite to haggle, there is no harm in accepting a great deal. Remember that in Mexico it is okay for you to tip waiters, bartenders, drivers, bellboys and more workers so remember to take with you some extra change for them.
