When to go??

Hi all,

My boyfriend and I are planning on going on holiday to cancun at the start of may but I have just checked the weather and it says it is quite a rainy month. Should we pick another time to go? We love the sun and would not want the rain to ruin our holiday!

Thank you for your help!

May is actually a pretty good month to go to CUN. Early rather than late May..That month averages 7" of rain.. Which is quite low...

High 87F...Low 72F.....Can't beat that...I'm sure there will be plenty sun....

We have been to Cancun in February, June, and September. February was beautiful and it did not rain the 4 days we were there. In June it rains but not all day (at least when we went) and not every day. The last time we went in September it was so beautiful. Hardly no rain the entire week we were there and the temperatures were comfortable. It was probably the best week ever of all the times we have been. We got lucky.

I went in February and it was fantastic weather. Better to go in a month that is not so rainy.

Hi all,

Thank you for the help. Would it be better to go at the end of April?

May or June is the best time to go, I would avoid February or any of the winter months as it is usually windier, the ocean is usually rougher and it rarely is a wash out or rain all day in may or June .

I much prefer late spring or summer over winter months,
