MEXICO - EXPERIENCE THE COPPER CANYON

NATURE & CULTURE - Side Tour

INTRODUCTION

Copper Canyon, in northern Mexico, is a series of massive canyons in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains. Popular for hiking, it gets its name from the copper-green hue of the canyon walls. The famous Chepe (Ferrocarril Barrancas del Cobre) train connects the region via over 80 tunnels and nearly 40 bridges. Divisadero, a photo stop on the line, offers views into Urique Canyon

The metropolis is located at 2,310 meters above sea level in central Mexico. The high location influences the cold tropical climate, and there are moderate spring-like daytime temperatures throughout the year. The average daily maximum temperatures fluctuate between 19 and 26 degrees over the course of the year, at night the temperatures drop to values between 6 and 13 degrees. Mexico City is normally spared from severe climate phenomena such as heat waves or snow chaos. The daytime temperatures reach between 19 and 21 degrees Celsius from December to February. At night they drop to 6 degrees. December and January are the coldest months in Mexico City with average temperatures of 12.5 to 12.2 degrees. In spring, from March, the temperatures rise to 24 degrees, until they reach their peak in June with 26 degrees. The night temperatures during these months are between 8 degrees in March and 13 degrees in June. With the beginning of the rainy season in June, the maximum daily temperatures are 24 degrees, between July and September a constant 23 degrees. From July to September it is relatively mild at night with 12 degrees. In October and November the maximum daily temperatures are 21 and 20 degrees. At night temperatures drop to 10 degrees in October and 7 degrees in November. In the rainy season from June to September, heavy rain showers with strong thunderstorms (mostly in the afternoon to evening) determine the weather. Even in the rainy season, the sun still shines 6 to 7 hours a day. However, it is very humid. There is very little rain between October and May. The most precipitation occurs in July with 175.1 mm, in contrast to only 4.3 mm in February. From October to May, the humidity in Mexico City is low. Climate / Weather Yucatan – Riviera Maya The Yucatan Peninsula has a warm, humid climate with air temperatures between 25 and 35 degrees Celsius, depending on the season. In the period from August to October, tropical cyclones, hurricanes, can occur. The rainy season, in which there can be heavy rains every day, starts in May and ends in October of each year. The rains are usually short-lived and usually occur in the morning or early evening. From November to April the sun almost always shines and it rarely rains. However, the Yucatan’s Caribbean side is more likely to be surprised by rain showers than the rest of the country. In the period from April to September it is often very humid and hot. The European winter, from November to March, is the best time to travel, because this is the time when the temperatures are most pleasant. The water temperatures are around 26 degrees all year round, so nothing stands in the way of a refreshing swim in the Caribbean Sea. Visitors to the Yucatan Peninsula should always think of good sun protection, because you can get sunburned even in the shade.
