Why you should visit Mexico in winter seems like a no-brainer for anyone who has visited the sunny shores of Mexico before, but here are a few reasons to entice newcomers to visit Mexico in winter.
The most obvious reason to visit Mexico in winter is, of course, the weather. While you are probably scraping ice off your car windscreens or shoveling snow from your driveways, the coastal vacation destinations in Mexico are slapping on sun block and putting on the A.C. Winter is sunny with little chance of rain during the winter months in the top vacation locations such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and the Islands of Loreto.
Mexico is cheap to get to from the US and Canada during winter thanks to the number of budget airlines that schedule flights to Mexico’s popular beach destinations. Once you are there, it is cheap to eat out and buy souvenirs, and there are plenty of affordable tours and excursions.
Most people would agree that Mexican cuisine is one of the most delicious. Winter in Mexico means great food at great prices, including fresh fish, exotic fruits and vegetables.
Winter in Mexico brings with it other advantages including a range of wildlife. Birding enthusiasts will enjoy a number of migratory birds heading south for the winter as well as whales on the Pacific coastline and Baja California.
Good for You Health
Another reason why winter in Mexico is a great choice is that it can be good for your health. Exposure to more sunshine during winter, taking care to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, will increase your body’s absorption of vitamin D, which helps with bone strength and other bodily functions.
Winter in Mexico also means that you can choose from a range of top beach destinations to enjoy a vacation. Coastal locations such as Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Riviera Nayarit, Puerto Vallarta and the Sea of Cortez are among the most popular.
