What is the Best Time to Go to Cancun, Mexico?
With white sandy beaches, natural wonders, archeological sites, and endless things to do all year long, there is actually never a wrong time to visit Cancun, Mexico. However, depending on your interests and vacation goals, we'll help you select the best time to go to Cancun!
From May to August if you are chasing the sun
Known for its tropical weather, Cancun offers a great escape from the cold! If a hot, hot getaway is what you seek, book your flight between May and August when temperatures of up to 92°F (33°C) are quite common.
The warm water temperatures make it ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving in the ocean; this is also the season where whale sharks visit the Caribbean!
From October to May to avoid seaweed
From April to September, the Caribbean sea's turquoise waters change hues due to the presence of seaweed. If you want to dip into sargassum-free beaches, the best season is from October to May.
Fun Fact: Some resorts like Seadust Cancun have made efforts to keep the seaweed from arriving at the shore by implementing a marine-life-friendly barrier. It's still a prototype, but maybe soon, you won't have to worry about this factor when deciding the best time to go to Cancun.
Between February and May when it rarely rains
The best time to travel to Cancun and avoiding rainy days is between February and May. Did you know that on average, April and May are the months with the least rainfalls of the year?
Also, one of the best things about the weather in Cancun is that it could be rainy one moment, and in the blink of an eye, the sun can shine again. Therefore, even during the rainier months, you're most likely going to have fun under the sun of Cancun, Mexico.
September, October, and November to save money
For those who travel on a budget, September, October, and November are great options for going to Cancun as you'll save a bundle in airfare, hotel rooms, and even tours.
If you're looking forward to staying in the most luxurious suites and the ones with the best views, this is the best season to do so because upgrades have attractive discounts!
Expert tip: Book a few months in advance ( 4 months or more) and get an even better rate for anticipated booking!
From December to May to avoid hurricane season
Cancun is in a zone that can get hit by cyclones. Although it doesn't happen very often, three hurricanes hit Cancun last year, leaving thousands of travelers without their dream vacations. That’s why we recommend always checking the weather forecast before traveling.
Another benefit of traveling between the beginning of December and the end of May is that the tide is the lowest and calmest, so you can safely swim in Cancun's characteristic blue waters. Scuba divers also get the most visibility during these months!
Expert Tip: If you happen to be in Cancun for the spring equinox on March 20 or 21, head to Chichen Itza for the famous light and shadow show. You'll feel re-energized!
