 CLIMATE IN MÉXICO - SOMETHING TO CONSIDER

Some who have become interested in serving where the need is greater in México  have either wondered about the climate or have just assumed that the weather is too oppressively hot for them to ever live there.  The weather, of course, can be a big factor to consider when one is older or if one has health problems. However, since México is such a large country, there are great variations in the climate there just as in the United States, depending upon where you live.

The following information has been taken & edited from "México Mike" Nelson's  link at: www.mexicomike.com/weather/weather-1.htm Those thinking of serving in México might find his information about the climate just what they needed to know!

 

MÉXICO WEATHER - TROPICAL & GENERAL

Tropical weather in México is A Matter of the seasons.

General weather in México is more a matter of altitude than seasons.

"México is more than a desert between two beaches. México is a vast country and colonial México is seldom hot, even in the summer. That's the mistake most people make when they talk about summer in México, when they only know the beach resorts. 

"Many who have never been to México, or have only traveled to Cancun or the beach resorts have misconceptions about the weather in México. They are often heard to say," I wouldn't go to México in the summer -- too hot." Nothing could be farther from the truth, as most Texans will tell you. Everyone knows winter is fine almost anywhere in México, but don't know that it can get freezing or in the 40's in México City, Morelia, Toluca and sometimes even San Miguel de Allende. People live, work and retire in México because of the weather. San Miguel de Allende,Guanajuato, Cuernavaca, Oaxaca, Lake Chapala, Guadalajara, Morelia, Cuernavaca or anywhere in colonial México are just fine in summer.

In the book, Live Better South of the Border, "weather conditions are given for all year for each of the two dozen Mexican cities foreigners might want to live. Yes in the summer, Alamos, San Carlos, Guaymas, and most of Sonora is too hot for most folks. Mazatlan is more bearable than Pto. Vallarta and it isn't as bad as farther south on the Pacific coast, although a bit humid. Acapulco and south are pretty hot.

"Weather in México is a more related to altitude than the seasons. Sure, it gets hot sometimes everywhere, but generally, if you are in colonial México during the summer, you will be a lot cooler than most of the U.S. and southern Canada.

"However, San Miguel de Allende, Guadalajara, México City, Cuernavaca and most of Morelos state have spring-like temperatures all year. Oaxaca is cool all year. Monterrey is hot, but Saltillo is cool. Zacatecas is still cool even in the dead of summer.

"The Yucatan is pretty warm, though the coast has cooling breezes. Winter is  nice most everywhere, gringos go to México. But it gets cold the higher up you are. And Morelia, though not very high can be pretty chilly. So can Monterrey. Saltillo is too cold for some. And Zacatecas --  bring a heavy coat, or buy a leather one there."
