As you know, I’ve fallen in love with all-inclusive resorts in Cancun. In 2019, I visited the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya and TRS Coral in Costa Mujeres. The number one question I’m hearing is, when is the best time to go to Cancun?

Cancun Travel Seasons
- High Season (Mid-December through March): Winter and early spring are peak travel times in Cancun when rates for hotels and flights are at their priciest and crowds at their heaviest. Christmas, New Year’s, and especially Spring Break are the most popular times for travel here. But by booking a several months in advance, travelers can find better rates and occasional deals. To avoid crowds during high season, book your stay in Riviera Cancun, Playa Mujeres, and Isla Mujeres, which are all less populous than the main drag along the Hotel Zone. Book the Best Cancun Hotels and Best Cancun Family Hotels far in advance for high season holidays.
- Low Season (June through October): Summer is the low season here when deal-hunters can score the best rates on hotel rooms, flights, and excursions. Expect beaches, bars, and attractions to be low-key and much less crowded than usual. These budget-friendly months are not the best weather-wise, with long hot days and frequent showers. Storms are generally heavy but brief, and though this is technically hurricane season, big storms are rare and have only landed twice in the past thirty years. July and the tail end of October tend to have the driest and least cloudy days of the season.
- Shoulder Season (April, May, and November through mid-December): Shoulder season can be an amazing time to visit Cancun, with sunny days, lower chance of rain, and manageable crowds. Though deals aren’t as hot as in the low season, room rates are much lower than in the high season, especially if booking in advance or for stays over five nights. Exceptions to this fall during Thanksgiving Week, a popular travel time for Americans, and during Holy Week, the week before Easter, the busiest time for Mexican family vacations.
