Yoga retreats and vacations to Mexico are wonderful any time of year. Many people like to plan a getaway during the winter months, when they can have a break from cold weather back home. Others enjoy visiting Mexico in the spring and early summer, when vacation time is easier to come by. What many people may not be aware of is that tourist season is divided into the high and low season. High season runs from December through May, and is characterized by a large number of tourists flooding into the area to enjoy everything that Mexico has to offer. June to November, hurricane season in the Atlantic and Caribbean, is considered the low season for tourists, and is a great time to visit Mexico. Here are the top 4 reasons why you should come to Mexico during the low season:
Cheaper airfare and easier travel. If you travel during the low season, you’ll find the experience quite pleasant. Airfare is cheaper, and you can often find some great deals that will get you to Mexico for a significant savings. You’ll also have an easier time going through the airport in Mexico, as there are fewer travelers to contend with. If you’re planning and organizing a retreat, the cheaper prices available during the low season could help make the cost more affordable for people thinking about attending.
Less crowded beaches. Imagine the perfect beach in your mind: the blue water and the blue sky stretching out to meet each other at the horizon. Sparkling sands, with the waves lapping at the shore, and plenty of space to stretch out and relax. During the low season you won’t have to battle for beach space with thousands of other tourists or retreat groups. The beach is much less crowded, which means it’s peaceful and relaxing. You’ll be able to stroll along the water or lay out in the sun with ease. The later part of the low season (August through November) also means that students are back in school, meaning that the tourists you’re likely to encounter are mostly adults, rather than children and teens.
Less crowded tourist attractions. During the low season, you might just feel like you’ve stumbled into your own private world! In addition to less crowded beaches, other key attractions are also much less crowded. In particular, you can enjoy the amazing cenotes without having to battle large crowds of tourists. If you want to take a day trip to Chichen Itza, you’ll also find it much easier to get around and enjoy the sights. It’s also less crowded in Puerto Morelos, where Casa Om is located, so you’ll have an all-around easier time shopping, dining out, and enjoying all of the local sights.
Great weather. To be sure, concern about hurricanes is part of what makes the low season the low season. But while hurricanes do happen, they are not a constant occurrence. The weather is generally amazing, and it can be a wonderful and warm getaway during the fall and early winter months. Summer time is sunny and warm, perfect for people who love the outdoors.
