Visit Mexico City
Best Time To Go
June through September is the rainy season, but don't be put off by that label; rain tends to come in dramatic bursts in the evening, and it's a rare day when the sky pours. It’s possible to travel to Mexico City at any time of year. Winters are mild, with the lowest temperatures dropping to the 50s, while falls are crisp, and springs are lovely, with jacaranda trees blooming all over town.
Transport options, both public and private, abound herel, which is convenient, given that there's so much ground to cover. The Metro system isn't frequented by tourists, which is a shame: though it can be hot and crowded, it's extremely efficient, and at 5 pesos (about a quarter) a ride, it's a bargain. Aboveground, there's the MetroBus, taxis, and car services like Uber. Traffic jams are common but the city is pedestrian-friendly in many neighborhoods, especially Centro Histórico, Juárez, Condesa, Roma, Polanco, and Coyoacán.
May is the hottest month, with an average temperature of 64°F (18°C). December is the coldest month, with an average temperature of 55°F (13°C).
Know Before You Go
Uber is your best bet for getting around—it’s much more affordable than regular taxis, plus service is excellent, and drivers are all equipped with cell phones, so they can find places that regular taxi drivers may not be able to locate.
