Mexico Climate: 

Land to the north experiences cooler temperatures during the winter months varying from hot and humid during the summer, cooler in the winter (68 to 75.2 °F). South of the twenty-fourth parallel, Mexico temperatures are fairly constant year round (between 75.2 and 82.4 °F) and vary solely as a function of elevation. 

Mexico has pronounced wet and dry seasons. Most of the country experiences a rainy season from June to mid-October and significantly less rain during the remainder of the year. February and July generally are the driest and wettest months, respectively. 

Calling Internationally: 

To call Mexico from the United States, dial the international prefix, 011; then Mexico’s country code, 52; and then the city code, then dial the actual phone number.

Electricity: 

The electricity in Mexico is 127 Volts, alternating at 60 cycles per second. If you travel to Mexico with a device that does not accept this, you will need a voltage converter. Plugs have Flat blade plug, so if your device does not have this, an adapter plug is needed.
