Mexico and Cancun, Figures and Facts
Hot and sunny from January to December, the weather in Cancun is much like the weather of any other Caribbean destination, with year-long temperatures oscillating around 25-30 degrees Celsius, peaking at the height of the summer months between May to September and seeing the strongest winds and rains between September and November. But even the rainy season shouldn't put travellers off visiting during this time as bright spells of sunshine are still guaranteed virtually every day.
