mexican journey according to climate this winter

mMexican journey according to climate this winter

I'm planning a lengthy semi-country-wide tour of Mexico starting in Jan 2007. My question is how should I order the destinations to taken in the best weather and climate and avoid pollution and other obvious undesirables.

I plan to start in Tijuana (just because it's so close to San Diego), and I want to experience both.

From TJ, I plan to fly to a central Mexican destination (either Mexico City, Guadalajaura, or Peurto Vallarta). I don't know which to go to first, but want to see them all.

I want to avoid rainy weather. I also don't like cold nights (as it will be January there). I want to go out at night with realtive comfort.

So, what do you think? How should I order my Mexican journey starting this January?

Eventually, I want to end up in Cancun (before departing for Havana, Cuba). I want to take in as of Mexico as possible, especially natural scenary, but avoid dirt and pollution.

So TJ to Cancun in a few months. How should I do it?

thanks

How are you planning to travel through Mexico? Fly? Bus? There are great first class buses--so I would think you would want to make your trip in a geographic order: fly to PV, bus to Guadalara, Morelia (you might try and get up to Angangeo to see the butterflies), Mex City, then on to Oaxaca, Merida, Cancun. Or, do you want to just beach hop? Then it would be PV, Manzanillo, Zihuatenejo,Acapulco, Huatulco, then you'll have to hop inland--TGA, or Villahermosa (Palenque?), then on to Campeche, Merica, Cancun. WHEW!

I agree to start with Puerto Vallarta. Weather in January is great, in fact I will be there the 19th on, then on to Guadalajara. If you like shopping at all stop in Tonala, it is just a fun experience. Easy to ride the bus to Guadalajara and a lot cheaper than flying. Then Morelia, and Mexico City. There is quite a lot to see around the suburbs of Mexico City, it is a fascinating place. I would skip Oaxaco because of the Obredor Presidential business as I have heard he is still trying to keep people demonstrating. If you stop in Merida you could take in Uxmal and Chichen Itza ruins which are I think a "Must SEE." The ruins out of Mexico City Teotihuacan are totally different that Chichen Itza and Uxmal. The pyramid of the sun is by Mexico City and very impressive. Then on down to Cancun and do a side trip to Isla Mujeres as its a very short ferry ride from Cancun. I don't know about Mexico City to Merida but Puerto Vallarta and Cancun will be very nice and warm in January.
