Tulum is a great destination any time of the year, but you need to know what to expect before you go.

The weather is pretty much summery all year long (it cools off in the evenings in winter), so the seasons are divided into rainy and dry.

The rainy or wet season usually begins in June or July and lasts until November, with the heaviest rains usually being in July-August. This can mean rain all night, every night, with sunny days, or it can mean rain during the day as well. Rain is usually welcome during this time of the year, as the summer months are pretty hot and the rain cools things off. The rainly season does not scare away visitors, July and August are two of the busiest months of the year, with many travelers coming from Europe and filling the beach cabanas.

The dry season is, of course, for the remaining half of the year. There can be very short downpours or light rains during the dry season as well.

 Generally, the coolest months of the year are December-January, and the warmest are June-July.
