If a Mexico beach vacation is on your travel bucket list but you’re stuck in the planning phase, Expedia has you covered with the inside scoop on the best time to visit Mexico and how to find the best deals on hotels, flights and more! According to the travel booking website, late summer or early fall is the best time to visit Mexico if you’re looking for a great deal, as revealed by its virtual treasure trove of vacation booking information, which offers helpful money saving advice and helps pinpoint current travel trends.
“Our southern neighbor has always been a prime leisure destination, not only due to its proximity but also because it generally costs a lot less (and takes much less time to get there) than a transatlantic or transpacific trip”, wrote the San Francisco Gate about Mexico. “And of course, the country’s beaches are hard to beat, lined with a variety of accommodations ranging from charming boutique hotels and convenient all-inclusive properties to big, busy and action-packed mega resorts”.
Although vacationing in Mexico is always a bargain - especially for U.S. and Canadian travelers - Expedia reveals that the absolute best time to save money on a Mexico vacation is the month of September, when the cost of airfare tends to reach its lowest point of the year, according to the data.
Of course, the cost of a Mexico vacation can be even more budget friendly if you book airfare in a package with your hotel, or if you book well in advance and opt to stay in a smaller, more intimate boutique property, luxury condo, etc. Insider Tip: Every Monday, Expedia posts its Most Loved Destinations, offering deals and packages for hotels and airfare, with travel savings that often reach up to 20 percent or more.
“Booking a flight + hotel bundle with Expedia could save you up to $600 on your trip”, the company revealed. “You can also pre-book various tours and activities through the site”.
Regardless of when you plan to visit Mexico, here are a few more travel tips from Expedia’s top booking experts:
- Plan to depart the U.S. on a Thursday or Friday.
- Search and book hotel rooms on a Friday night.
- Search and book flights on a weekend (especially Sunday) at least three weeks in advance.
Of course, summer in Mexico can be hot and rainy, but average temps run in the high 80s, compared to the low 80s in springtime. Also, keep in mind that summertime rain showers in Mexico often tend to blow in for a few hours in the afternoon, creating the ideal environment for a siesta!
