May Weather - ?

Could you lease help me with some info?

I checked a few weather web sites and understand that the rain season starts in May in Cancun/Play Del Carmen area. I see a lot of rainy and cloudy days in the forecast. Is it really that bad? No sun shine and just rain, rain, rain??? We will be staying in Iberostar Tucan May 25-June 1 and I try to hope for a nice weather at least sometimes. So what is the real weather there at this time?

Thank you for sharing your experience!

Almost never a day with no sunshine. It does sometimes rain hard for a short period but then the sun will emerge.

I am also going to be in the area May 25 -29th. I'm hoping for SOME sun!!

I've been hearing the same advise -- that even during rainy days there are periods of sunny skies.

Was there for 10 days in mid-May

Rained for 12 minutes (timed it) one afternoon around 4:30.

Some rainy season!
