Cozumel in May

We typically go to COZ in Feb. to dive but the weather is questionable. Does anyone have any insight about the weather and tourist numbers, prices, etc. in May?

My wife and I have been going the first week of May for the last eight years. The weather at this time is perfect for us. Low 70's in the morning, upper 80's to low 90's in the afternoons. I honestly don't remeber it raining more than once or twice in the last eight years. Tourist numbers are lower as it is the start of the slow season. We typically book six to eight weeks out and find the prices to be better than most other times of the year. We were there for eight nights in May for $1800. We are considering a quick second trip and can't find four days for under $2000 now.

It's one of my favorite months, not to hot or rainy and the crowds are low.

I love it in May. Good weather, usually just a quick shower to cool you off.

Same here. May is our favorite time. The ocean water has warmed up and the weather is still not too hot. We were there for 11 days this past May and it rained twice. Both times it rained was late at night.

Another vote on May being the best month.... I mean it is terrible go in June. All kidding aside, we have been there at the end of April and in May 6 times and the weather is almost always great. Prices are fantastic and unlike the slow season in the fall, most every business is still open.

Huh. February is definitely one of my favorite times to go. I don't see what's questionable about the weather.

May can be pretty nice, I agree.

We like May and September. May isn't as hot and it seemed like more was open. You really can't go wrong, I would go any month!
