Weather Tips

Weather Advice

Weather will vary depending on the particular place. In Tuxtla Gutiérrez the weather is warm and humid, with temperatures ranging from 25° to 32° Celsius throughout the year. Cotton clothing will be warm enough.

San Cristóbal de las Casas has a cool climate and the temperatures range from 10° to 20° Celsius (between 0° and 10° in winter). You will need a sweater or a jacket. The rainy season is from July to October so it is a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or coat.

Palenque, Agua Azul, Misol-Ha, Yaxchilan and the Lacandona jungle are tropical climates, very warm and humid and temperatures range between 25° and 35° Celsius all year round. We recommend that you bring very comfortable cotton clothing. Bermudas or shorts are only recommended if you use mosquito repellent otherwise cotton pants are fine.
Photos Tips

Camera & Mobile

Bring a photographic or video camera (in some places you will have to pay an additional cost in order to use your video camera, but it shouldn’t be expensive). In San Juan Chamula and Zinacantán it is prohibited to use video cameras due to local rules.
