Well, we are entering my favorite time of the year in Mexico – hurricane season! I kid only slightly, as I do like the rainy/mosquito/humid months in Mexico more than any other. The sunsets become a vibrant 60’s flashback, everything turns from brown to green, and tourism takes a little bit of a break, leaving behind the twisted souls who find peace in a violent rainstorm followed by an eerie stillness. There is really nothing like it.
There are a lot of good travel deals July – October as hotels understand that some money is better than no money (although much of Mexico travel in August). So if you are looking for a good price at a nice resort or independent hotel this is a good time to start searching the web. And you should also find one or two good hurricane tracker web sites just in case one starts to blow on your travel dates. Just type hurricane tracker into your search engine and you’ll find numerous sites. With enough warning you may even be able to cancel your trip with little or no penalty…or you can go ahead and take your chances.
