All rates shown in our tariff sheets or web site have to be re-confirmed at time of booking.

High and Low Season.

Peak Season: December 16th. thru April 15th. Off Season: April 16th. thru December 15th.
Please note Mexico City hotels have considerable higher rates during midweek days (Tuesday thru Thursday).
Planning you tour to stay in Mexico City during week-ends may reduce costs and will facilitate securing adequate space.

Weather and clothing.

You may find all kind of weathers in a day in Mexico, depending where you travel. Basically, there is a "dry season" from October thru May and a "rainy season" for the rest of the year. A light top for dry season and a rain coat for rainy season are recommended. If your trip will be during November thru March and you include the Copper Canyon, you will need warm clothing. Packing a light top or sweater for cool evenings is a good advice.


Please note Mexican establishments do not include service charge in their bills. Consequently, waiters expect a tip. A 10% of the bill is acceptable in tourist class hotels and restaurants; personnel in  higher quality establishments however, expect a minimum of 15% gratuity. A guide expects about $2 US per day per person; a motor coach driver about $1 US per day per person; a room attendant $1 US per day per room.
