How to Spend the Holidays in Mexico

Winter brings unique opportunities to explore Mexico’s cultural and natural attractions. Both abound in Yucatan, the state is home to UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Chichen Itza and Uxmal, the Magic Towns of Valladolid and Izamal and the “White City” of Merida.

“This area is particularly strong in winter because our winter is very mild. We get almost no rain. It’s more comfortable to be walking and climbing pyramids in this condition than in a humid, warm summer,” Fernando Ceballos, director of tourism and promotion for Yucatan State, tells Travel Agent.

The winter season, said Ceballos, begins with Dia de los Muertos at the beginning of November.

“The animated movie, ‘Coco,’ that just came out, is calling attention to the deep roots of our Mexican traditions. Here in Yucatan, we celebrate in such a beautiful and magical way. There is so much to engage visitors this time of year, it’s fantastic,” said Ceballos.

Yucatan, of course, isn’t the only destination with attractions for the winter visitor. San Miguel de Allende is known for its festivals, parades and concerts.

“During the holiday season, San Miguel de Allende welcomes locals and visitors alike,” Guillermo Gonzalez, director of the San Miguel de Allende Tourism Board, tells Travel Agent. “They can walk cobblestone streets colorfully decorated in bright colors and sit in plazas where Nativity scenes come to life and choirs rejoice. I would invite everyone to try our traditional drink, the atole de cascara and visit the arts and crafts market where they will find one-of-a-kind gifts for loved ones.”
