Weather details in may

Because of the rise in temperatures and the gradual return of precipitation, climatic conditions in Cancun deteriorate slightly. Of course, the days are still magnificent but because of the heat in the middle of the day, the atmosphere can pass for overwhelming. However, the climate throughout May in Cancún remains comfortable.

Cancún at the Beginning of May

As the precipitation is still low, there are many sunny days during the first ten days of May. Moreover the heat is still comfortable because the temperatures rise only a notch. This perfect combination of warmth and good weather makes the climate throughout May in Cancún an asset to an unforgettable stay.

Cancún in the Middle of May

It is during the second ten days of May that the deterioration of climatic conditions becomes palpable. In addition to rising temperatures, rainfall increases in both intensity and frequency. It can happen that very intense rains disrupt any outings during the day or at night.

Cancún at the End of May

If one's stay in Cancún coincides with the last ten days of May, prepare to have the chance to enjoy beautiful sunny days and pleasantly warm weather. This is possible, thanks to the regression of rainfall and the drop in temperature.
