Why does Mexico have both tropical and dry climates?
Mexico’s climate varies from arid to tropical, with a defined split. The Tropic of Cancer divides the country into two so one part is temperate and the other, tropical. Therefore, land to the north has cooler temperatures during the winter months while more southerly regions see temperatures remain constant year-round.
What are the climate zones in Mexico and Central America?
∎ Five climate zones: Caliente (hot), Templada (warm), Fria (cold), Helada (frozen), and Paramos.
What is the climate zone at the top of Mexico’s mountains?
Most of Mexico’s temperate climates are to be found inland—up in the mountains. Tierras Templadas offer, as the name suggests, a mild and moderated climate all year-round. Most of Mexico’s colonial cities are situated at elevation in the country’s temperature climate zones.
