Where to stay in Mexico
The best time to visit Mexico's East Coast
The dry season on the East Caribbean Coast of Mexico runs from December to April, while the rainy season is from May to November. Hence its name, the dry season is your best bet for uninterrupted sunshine, where the temperatures average around 26°C. Showers do still occur but they are very infrequent.
Towards the end of the dry season, around May, the humidity and temperature start to rise. Between July and September, the humidity can be fierce while temperatures can top 30°C. June to November is the official Caribbean hurricane season and while the Yucatán Peninsula dodges many of the hurricanes that Caribbean islands can often encounter, storms (though rarely destructive) are not uncommon. On the flip side, whale sharks and dolphins appear off the coast of the peninsula from mid-May to mid-September.
