With an elevation of 7,349 feet (2,240 meters), Mexico City is quite cool in the winter months (November thru February) and can get very cold at night. During the day it warms up but a coat is always advisable. It's hot in the summer, t-shirt and shorts for sure, although you can get wet!. The hottest months are April, May and June. Unfortunately, the horrendous pollution in Mexico City is equally bad all year round.
