Dress Code

Dress in comfortable clothes and good walking shoes. Many streets are cobblestone and sidewalks aren’t always well-maintained, so don’t wear cowboy boots or heels. We will be at high elevation with lots of sun, so bring a hat and plenty of sunscreen. Plan for warm days and cool nights – you’ll want a light jacket, sweater or wrap for nighttime. If you're coming on tour in September or October you'll catch the tail end of the rainy season so a raincoat and waterproof shoes are recommended just in case.

In general, Mexicans dress more formally than Americans. Men do not wear shorts unless swimming. As a foreigner, it is fine (for both men and women) to wear shorts and tank tops, though you will stand out, and women should expect some stares.

Weather Information

Weather from September - May should be warm, with the occasional afternoon shower in September-October. Expect highs in the 80s and overnight lows around 60. However, climate change is a reality in Mexico and there has been a recent cold snap. Bring a light jacket just in case.
