Weather and Visiting
With plenty of sunshine, limited rainfall and warm
temperatures around the year it is always a great time
to visit Monte Albán.
There is good weather almost all of the year in this
part of Mexico, though it is raining more often in
September. From December through to April there is
practically no rain and very comfortable temperatures.
On the day that you visit do start as early as you
can, the first minibus from the city leaves at 8:30 or
you can take a taxi earlier than that. Starting in
the morning gives you the best views of the site, more
shade and cooler weather and of course less crowds,
though the site is never very crowded due to it's great
size if you want to take wide photographs without other
visitors visible then earlier will be better.
Opening hours at 8:00AM until 4:30PM for the site
itself, while the museum will close at 4:00PM.
