Mexico City (CDMX) is an incredible city to visit at any time of the year. But, in spring and summer, the town comes to life in a very special way because its pleasant weather allows for different activities and experiences you won’t want to miss.

If you’re considering visiting CDMX in spring or summer, stay here because we will tell you about some of the best experiences in this season.

#1 Enjoy the Jacaranda Season
In spring, Mexico City dresses in lilac thanks to the flowering of the jacaranda trees. The Roma and Condesa neighborhoods are known for their beautiful jacaranda trees, so we recommend walking through these areas to enjoy the view.

In addition, many restaurants and cafes have terraces surrounded by these trees, so you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon while admiring these city beauties.

#2 Go to a Music Festival of Your Favorite Artists
If you are a music lover, you can’t miss the opportunity to attend one of the many music festivals in spring and summer in CDMX. Among the favorite music events of chilangos during this season are the Vive Latino, Ceremonia, Corona Capital and Vaivén festivals. They all feature top national and international artists and many new proposals from independent artists or those who are just beginning their first steps in front of big stages.

In addition to good music, these festivals offer different artistic, cultural and gastronomic experiences.

#3 Experience the Spring Equinox in Teotihuacán
Teotihuacán is one of Mexico’s most important archaeological sites and one of the favorites to experience the spring equinox. It’s not actually in CDMX, but it’s located 1.5 hours away.

During this event that takes place between March 20 and 21, thousands of people go to Teotihuacán to be filled with good energy. It becomes an event with a spiritual tinge in which most people are dressed in white to capture the vibes better. If you go, we recommend you to climb to the top of the pyramid of the sun and extend your arms to the sky to be part of the spiritual ritual of the spring equinox.

The spring equinox can be experienced in many archaeological sites throughout the country. Besides Teotihuacán, near Mexico City you can also go to the archaeological sites of Malinalco (in the State of Mexico), Cholula (in Puebla) or Xochicalco (in Morelos). All of them are about 2 hours away from the city and also offer a great energy renewal experience.

#4 Visit the City Parks
Although it is a highly urbanized metropolis, Mexico City has many parks, each with its own personality and attractions. Spring and summer are perfect times to visit them.

The most famous is the Bosque de Chapultepec, considered one of the largest urban parks in the world. Here you will find lakes, picnic areas, museums, and a lot of activities to enjoy outdoors. Another well-known park is Parque México in the Condesa neighborhood, which is famous for the large number of dogs that walk here and because in the evenings and weekends, you can find small events and music, dance and sports classes.

In CDMX, there are many terraces where you can enjoy the sun and the pleasant spring and summer weather.

In the historic center and Juárez, Roma and Condesa neighborhoods, you will find many restaurants, bars, cafes and breweries with terraces with a cozy and relaxed atmosphere.

#6 Explore the City’s Murals
Mexico City is also known for its enormous artistic offer, and an incredible way to get to know it is through its murals.

Mexican muralism is perhaps the most important artistic movement that has existed in Mexico.

Undoubtedly, the historic center is an ideal area to see murals, as many of them are located within the cultural venues located here.
