Cancun offers numerous attractions to satisfy everyone, it has more than 100 nearby beaches, archaeology sites as well as golfing, shopping, fine dining, holiday festivities and vibrant clubs where you can party into the wee hours of the morning.
Cancun in the Winter
Since Cancun has a tropical climate, you can expect the temperature to be consistently pleasant throughout the year, ranging from the high of 84 °F to the low of 79 °F. However, in the winter, you will get some rainfall, and there is a chance for hurricanes to develop.
Although hurricanes can happen during this season, large cyclones are rare, so tourists and locals can avoid being greatly affected. Federal, state and government authorities have measures in place just in case they have to deal with any issues that could arise from this type of emergency.
