If you prefer the sun and sand to the snow, Mexico City is the place to be! Make no mistake; a white Christmas isn’t what one would normally find in such a scenic destination. December is a wonderful time to take this vacation. The city is less crowded, there is little traffic, and most of the locals prefer to have a vacation elsewhere or stay indoors. You will find a relatively cheap price for the hotels, especially when booking before the actual Christmas or during New Year's time. Mexico City is relatively quiet this month and you can actually wander through the streets seeing the local attractions without an accompanying throng of people.
December in Mexico City is when you can expect the weather to be colder during the night time, but pleasantly warmer and overcast during the day.

Christmas markets, for instance, are a place where you can get to see the Mexican culture, with the locals gathered and spreading the festive cheer.
Mexico City also offers some serious entertainment with a lot of festivals and performances taking place. Offering a multitude of attractions, you can book your ticket to Mexico City and see some well-known attractions to spend time with family and friends during this quiet month as you celebrate Christmas.
