Where is the best weather in Mexico
Mexico is one of the countries with the greatest biodiversity in the world, because due to its geographical location that What makes it worthy of a great variety of climates is that it has become home to 12% of the world’s species (12,000 of which are endemic).
The country is located in two completely different areas as it is crossed by the Tropic of Cancer: on the one hand there is the tropical zone and on the other with a temperate climate, however, these are intermingled by the oceans and reliefs that surround Mexico giving rise to more times.
Given this, it is not surprising to find that in the highest parts of Chihuahua temperatures are around -30 degrees, while in the desert of Mexicali the thermometer reaches up to 50 degrees.
