A Complete Guide to Cancun’s Weather

Cancun is a vibrant resort located on Mexico’s northeast coast and Yucatan Peninsula. Cancun has been a popular resort in Mexico for many years now and certainly knows how to keep bringing the crowds back time after time.

In and around Cancun are some pretty spectacular and luxurious hotels, but if you can peel yourself of your sunbed and your lavish surroundings, you won’t be short of things to do.

Cancun enjoys a year-round tropical climate so the weather is always warm, however, it’s worth bearing in mind the rainy season runs from June to October. But don’t worry, it doesn’t rain all day, usually there’ll be short spurts in the evening. There is no getting away from the fact that July to October  is the hurricane season, although these are few and far between and Cancun and the hotels are well prepared if this does occur.
