Cancun Climate

You just cannot beat a sunny beach getaway and Cancun promises just that, whatever season! The climate in Cancun is reported to be the best of all the Caribbean destinations, boasting the most sunny day days on average. Both the sea and the air temperatures are warm no matter what times of the year you visit, making it the perfect choice for a winter vacation yet still pleasant during the summer season.

Statistics claim that Cancun has around 240 days of sunshine throughout the year and so you can be sure that the sun will shine on your vacation. It is not at all common for you to experience bad weather for the whole time you visit Cancun, which is why it is such a popular choice.

The length of the day does not fluctuate a great deal from the summer months to the winter, with 13 hours of daylight during summer as opposed to 11 hours in winter. If you suffer from seasonal affective disorder or SAD, a visit to Cancun could be just what the doctor ordered.

The temperature in Cancun is also very pleasant, although it can get very humid (which is great for wrinkles!), ranging from lows of 66ºF (19ºC) to highs of 91ºF (33ºC). In winter you will find that temperatures are pretty balmy, around 81ºF (27ºC) with an average low of 66ºF (19ºC).

Rain is a common concern for people planning on where to take a vacation and while it might rain during any time of the year in Cancun, you will find that it is not cold, dismal rain like in the States or Canada but more like warm light to moderate showers, followed by sunshine. Statistics also claim that Cancun experiences only an average of about 60 days of rain a year. However, it is worth noting that Cancun does have a hurricane season which can bring breathtaking electrical storms from June through November, and also put a spanner in the works if you are unlucky.
