Located on the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, Cancún offers good weather all year round. Although there is a rainy season between May and September, it tends to be mild in Cancún, so heavy rains are rare. Since the temperatures remain high even during the rainy season and there are still many sunny days, Cancún is a destination that you can choose for a beach vacation all year round. However, one should always keep in mind that due to Cancun's proximity to the Caribbean, it is possible that Cancun can be hit by the foothills of the hurricane season there, so one should always keep an eye on the weather forecast if one decides to travel to Cancun during the rainy season. Most tourists who arrive during this time come to the Gulf of Mexico to dive, because there are fewer vacationers on site, so you can use this time to enjoy the beauty of the underwater world of Cancún undisturbed.
Cancún is especially popular with tourists from Europe and the USA. Here it should be said that if you go on vacation between March and April, be prepared for the beaches to be crowded by numerous American students. This is because they come to Cancun every year for the spring break and it can get a bit wilder. But there are also many other things to see in Cancún, so you should not only spend the whole day on the beach. If you have a diving license or want to learn diving during your vacation, you should take a dive to the Underwater Museum of Cancún. There you can see up to 400 statues that look very lifelike and are all found on the ocean floor. Also located on the peninsula Yucatán and not far from Cancún is Cobá, a ruined Mayan city that you should definitely visit to walk in the footsteps of this impressive people. About 45 minutes from Cancún is Xcaret, a water amusement park that also has many elements of a zoo and is ideal for a trip with the whole family. There is also the possibility to swim with dolphins, which is very popular with almost all visitors.
If you travel to Cancún in the period from November to April, you will have ideal weather conditions. Because the temperatures are consistently pleasant and there are on average no more than 2 rainy days per month. Therefore, this period is often considered the best time for a vacation in Cancún. In May, the rainy season slowly begins in Cancún, although with an average of 5 rainy days, it is still very good to vacation there in May. From June to September, the rainy season peaks with about 11 to 12 rainy days per month and you can occasionally feel the foothills of the hurricane season in the Caribbean. However, since temperatures are at their highest during this time, there are many people who still accept the risk of rain and storms. Finally, there is October, in which there are still about rainy days per month, but here you no longer have to expect storms and can thus safely plan your Cancún vacation in October.
