you enjoy crowds and like excitement, then plan to visit
during national or religious holidays. Always pre-book
accommodations for holiday times, as hotels book up early. This will not be a budget holiday as
hotel prices rise dramatically during these busy times.
The busiest times are the two weeks before Christmas to a week
after new years, the week of Semanta Santa (Easter spring
break), and Carnival week (early February). St.
Patrick's day (March 17th) is also a busy Mexican holiday.
The prime high season (high cost) is from December 15th till
after Easter. The annual Mexican school vacation
period of July and August is also considered high season,
although not too many foreign tourists travel to the Costalegre in summer.
people who come to the Costalegre are looking for a quiet, laid
back holiday, so usually arrive after the crowds leave or
before they arrive. All of November and the first two
weeks of December are quieter, as well as the last three weeks
in January till the end of March (before Carnival). After Carnival
it is quiet again until Semanta Santa (holy week, Easter) at
the end of March. It is very quiet after Easter.
Hotels seldom close for the low season, but restaurants do. If
you go in October or November or after Easter you will have
fewer choices of where to eat.
The main tourist season is from November to April,
but many travelers visit year round.
