Cancun weather: October and November

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am sure there are threads directly addressing this put the search feature is not working for me and I haven't come across one. I have seen a lot of girls getting married in Cancun in October and haven't seen a single complaint about rainy weather but all of the info on the web says October and November are rainy. We are planning to have our wedding in November but package prices are significantly cheaper in October and we don't have our heart set on any specific month or date.

 

Has anyone had a bad experience in October (or Nov for that matter)? It would save our guests about $200 per person to switch to some time in October.

 

Thanks for the help!

Search isn't working, but if you click advanced search it still works.

 

October is peak hurricane season. That is why it's cheaper. But, november is also in season. If you do pick a date during hurricane season, look into getting insurance. There is a lot of info on the forum about insurance. I decided to avoid peak hurricane season & go with June. Prices are lower than jan-april and the chances of a hurricane are low in June.

We did plenty of hurricane research and there's very few hurricanes that have hit that area as late as November.

 

We chose our late November date, and were thrilled withthe weather.

 

Mid to high 80s every day. One night, there was a 15-20 minute downpour. Another early morning, about 10 huge rain drops while we walked on the beach. otherwise, gorgeous!!!

we got married in October in cancun and the weather was fantastic!!

 

I was following the weather about a month before we left and I was so scared because the forecast was rain everyday!! And that was everyday for a month, I'm like how is that possible!!

 

but I knew two girls that got married there within two weeks of me and they had beautiful weather and so did I!

 

When it rains, it rains for about 10 minutes a quick shower and thats it, then its beautiful.

 

We did buy trip insurance because of the amount of money we were spending. We didn't want to take any chances. The scariest part for me was the hurricane that was coming in August, I think? It was supposed to nail cancun and ended up going further south.

So, you're not only worrying about it happening while you're there, but there's the possibility that even a month or two after a hurricane hits, everything may not be back in tip top shape by the time you take your trip.

 

I don't want to scare you, but I do want to give you both sides of this. For us, October was really the only time we could make work unless we wanted to wait until this year, and we didn't.

We went with November because our travel agent had told us it is the end of hurricane season and it is very doubtful a tragedy such as that would occur. However like everyone else has said insurance is worth the money! Good luck and congrats!

just keep in mind the risk of picking the end of hurricane season. If the hotel gets hit in october, they may not be ready to reopen by november.

Also keep in mind how dark it will be by 6 pm in November. I brought my children to Cancun in late November and our days were really short, we had to make sure we woke up realllly early to make the most of our days. Other then that it was perfect weather, we needed light shawls or sweaters in the evenings, however.

This is all very helpful, thank you all so much! I guess we'll be 'rolling the dice' whether it is in October or November but we will definitely be getting the trip insurance (and having a mid-day wedding!). I'm in the same boat that Jilly was in, in that we would have to wait at least another six months to get married and we're ready to get married way before then. Thanks again!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
