Best Time To Visit Cancun

The best time to visit Cancun is from December to April.

In Cancun, the weather is always sunny but pleasant. Being a sea side town the breezes stop the temperatures from soaring too high even in summer. Moreover, there is no price for hiking during the tourist season (which is in winter). Check out the weather breakup based on months.

Seasons in Cancun

  • Wet Season (May to October): August and September are probably the hottest months here. If you wish to avoid the heat avoid these months. In May the weather is just perfect and the days are long and lovely and is good season to visit this place. It rains quite often since it is a tropical country.
  • Off Season: The Hurricane season starts in June and lasts till the end of October so if you are wondering when to visit Cancun, this is not really the preferred time. Since not many tourists prefer this time, May to August is considered to be an off season.
  • Dry Season (November to April): Tourists from colder countries prefer to visit during winter. The weather is simply divine. It is neither too cold nor is there any scorching heat. You can actually enjoy the sun and sand during winter without getting terrible sunburn. It is certainly the best time of the year to visit Cancun.

    Answer Report Abuse
    • Although there has been some violence going on in the city recently, government officials claim that the city is safe for tourists and no violence has been reported in the tourist areas. I would still suggest that you speak to the locals in the area or contact the tourist information centres in that area to get more details.
