When Is the Best Time

When Is the Best Time

Most travelers visit Taos between May and September. Summer means high season with more crowds and higher rates. The best sweet spot months with less tourists and pleasant temperatures at the same time are May until early June as well as late September through October.

Avoiding Tourist Crowds

You can avoid the most crowds by visiting early in the morning. Be there at 8 .a.m when Taos Pueblo opens (see below). We highly recommend being there first thing in the morning, especially during the busy high season. Another advantage to visiting early is the great lighting for photography and less heat in the summer.


The weather in Taos is usually pleasant year-round with more than 300 days of sunshine. However, it can get chilly in the winter (average high in January 40°F / 4°C). Monthly weather details including precipitation (you can switch between C and F at the top): Taos New Mexio - Monthly Climate

Taos is a great place to check out. Did you get to walk over the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge? While I liked a lot about the area, that experience stands out for me. The gorge is so magnificent it hardly seems real until you feel the bridge moving to remind you. ;)
