“Ready For The Crazy Nightlife?”

January to March

Avg Temperature: 85 °F

January to March, the end of winter, is still a really good time to travel to Tulum. Hotel are applying cheaper prices, beaches are less crowded and the number of tourists is smaller than you can expect. An average night in Tulum during this period is pretty lively and you still have many events, concerts and DJ sets. Cenotes and beaches will be your favorite destination to swim and chill under the sun, which is up for more hours compared to another season. The precipitation are really not high, so you will not have to worry about rainfall or humidity. It’s our favorite season of the year!

April to June

Avg Temperature: 92 °F

Spring in Tulum and in this part of Mexico can be though: temperature increase a lot during the day and the night, going to the beach during the day can be difficult because the average temperature can be easily 105 fahrenheit degrees, water is more hot and you will have many seaweeds as well. If you want to plan your trip in these months, we don’t really recommend you to do so. On the other hand, if you can bear high temperatures, most hotel are applying really good prices especially in June. So if you are on a budget and you aren’t afraid of sunny days, this is the real deal.

“You Will Love Being Here In December”

August to September

Avg Temperature: 90 °F

This is definitely the season you should avoid! If winter in Mexico is the best time of the year and has the best temperatures, August is not the same. Temperature in this case is not the problem, but what can become the real issue is the rain season and its humidity. So if weather is important for you, you should really avoid traveling in August. You don’t want rain to interrupt your day visiting cenotes or beaches, believe us. Moreover the water of the sea can really not be clear, so if you want to scuba dive or kite surfing it might not be possible due to weather conditions. It’s true that the beach is pretty empty in this period, but you’ll quickly understand why! Again if you travel on a budget, booking a hotel now will cost you way less than in December due to the good prices they apply in this period of the year.
