Mexico’s dry season runs from December to April, with the rainy season stretching from May to October. The Cancun area also has a rainy season from November to January, which usually means diving and snorkeling visibility is limited, and boats may not even be able to go out.
The humidity during the rainy season (especially May to July) can be uncomfortable, especially when combined with high temperatures. This isn’t a problem if you’re staying close to the beaches, but can be an issue if you head inland to Chichén Itzá or other sites in the interior.
From September to November, tropical storms and hurricanes become more frequent, though they do bring the temperature down.
