Every year, Cancun receives an average of ten million visitors, who come from all over the planet to enjoy the sun and its beaches, recognized among the most beautiful in the world for the color and cleanliness of the sea, the soft waves, the white and fine sand, its extraordinary biodiversity and, of course, the hospitality and friendliness of its people.
Cancun is the main attraction in the Riviera Maya, 120 kilometers of Mexican coast in the Caribbean Sea, full of natural beauty and treasures of the Mayan culture. Until about fifty years ago it was a small fishing village, surrounded by jungles and virgin beaches, which due to its extraordinary natural wealth has become a pole of development for the whole region and the pride of Mexico.
The city is undoubtedly known for its incredible white sand beaches and beautiful waters, but Cancun has much more to visit than simply spending the day at the beach. The area is a region of biological diversity and extremely rich in culture and history.
With mystical ruins that will transport you in time and modern and adventurous activities for the adrenaline junkie, there is something for all tastes.
Cancun enjoys a tropical climate with a characteristic rainy and dry season. Average temperatures vary slightly throughout the year, generally from 23 ° C (73 ° F) in the middle of winter to 28 ° C (82 ° F) in the middle of summer, rarely below 21 ° C (70 ° F) or above 34 ° C (93 ° F).
The most common time to visit Cancun is the dry season, from November to April, when temperatures are slightly cooler and rainfall is low. As this is the most popular visiting time, it is also the most expensive, so you should expect very high prices for flights and accommodations at this time of year.
The rainy season – from May to October – is a little warmer and with more chances of rainfall. Due to the less favorable weather conditions, Cancun is less popular this time of the year, which means that flights and vacation rentals can be booked at much lower prices than usual.
