Cancun is located on the Mexican Caribbean coast, due to its location and being a tropical destination the weather is mostly warm. From June to November, Cancun and all the state is on hurricane season. But do not worry, this doesn’t have to scare you, we will explain All you have to know about Cancun Weather.
Cancun has an average weather temperature of 77 Fahrenheit or 25 celsius depending on the time of the year you come. But most of the year is hot and humid.
Imagine yourself enjoying the crystal waters in one of the best beaches in Cancun, and then the sky turns dark and starts to rain. It sounds like a ruined plan, right? Well, this happens a lot in Cancun. We can have some spontaneous rain, mainly during this hurricane season. These rains are short and occasional, generally, they do not last all day. Do not get surprised if the day seems like it’s going to be perfect and then a light shower appears. Fortunately, after that uninvited rain, the sun comes back again.
Another good point is that the rainy days won’t last all your vacations. The rain might disappear one day before and you can still enjoy tours and activities in Cancun or Riviera Maya.
Last weekend, we were supposed to have a tropical storm in Cancun, and the rain never came. The storm lasted only two days, but it deviated and nothing happens in the city.
