OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Mexico City
Mexico City is mind-bogglingly huge. Wander through secretive lanes to a monumental cathedral, admire the arty colonial quarter of Coyoacán or relax in the shady Chapultepec Park. The city can be visited at any time as temperatures are agreeable year-round. There isn’t significant rainfall, though June - September are the wettest months. There are a deluge of exciting cultural events throughout the year: Independence Day on 16 September features celebrations all over the city; the Day of the Dead on November 1-2 is gruesomely colourful, while Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe on 12 December is Mexico's biggest religious festival, celebrated with a mass ceremony and a traditional fair.
