When to Go to New Mexico

New Mexico boasts low rainfall percentages and mild humidity year round. During the summer months, temperatures can reach the 90˚ range. Snow bunnies descend upon New Mexico’s mountains during the winter months, meaning November to February can be expensive times to travel. Visit New Mexico between March and May when the weather is mild, and the booking prices are less costly. The spring is an ideal time to book a trip to New Mexico to experience the many national parks and monuments without a high volume of tourists.
