Anyone had a late June/early July wedding in Cancun? - concerned about weather!

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I want to get married at Excellence Playa Mujeres next spring or summer. Unforfunately all weekends are booked through June. I'm concerned about hot temperatures and rain/hurricanes. Does anyone have advice? Or anyone that's had a June/July wedding in Cancun that can share their experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

We are getting married in June at the Excellence Riviera Cancun and we are having the ceremony on a Tuesday evening at 6pm to avoid the heat. I've read that temps can be brutal during the day but I checked the almanac and it seems to only be in the 80s that time of year. You should consider doing a weekday evening ceremony, I'm sure they'll have some weekday dates available for you! By the way, The Excellence properties are just beautiful :)

Hey soon2bmrscason! 

 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

 

It's true, temps are high in Cancun that time of year, but luckily the best activity is lounging in the pool and playing in the ocean! I had my wedding at ERC in June 2010 and wouldn't have changed a thing. It's the Summer in Mexico so it's definitely going to be hot and humid, but luckily there are always plenty of cool drinks to help out with that! If you have any other questions feel free to let me know!  Here are a few pics from my wedding & reception! Yes, the guys shirts are definitely coming off...from the heat! :)

Weather is weather... not much you can do about it! That being said...

 

 

Playa Del Carmen weather, In our own words:

DECEMBER, JANURAY, FEBUARY 

This is the best time of the year to travel to the Mayan Riviera if you don't like excruciating heat. December and January, temperatures cool down and on cloudless days swimming is just beautiful. At this time of the year you get the least amount of daylight, but Playa Del Carmen & Cancun light up at night so it's not really an issue.

Humidity and rain are lowest during this period. If rain or a cloudy days do occur, things can cool down considerably. It is advisable to take a light jacket with you in order to stay comfortable.

MARCH, APRIL, MAY

Things start heating up mid-February and by April you can be roasting on the beautiful beaches of the Mayan Riviera. Water temperatures have not caught up but outside temps have started to rise.

The "rains" start in April peaking in July-August. This is a wonderful time to travel because after "Spring Break", things calm down until the summer travel season starts in late June. Water temps are warm enough to swim comfortably; it's hot but not "July-August" hot. Weather-wise, it's a great time of the year to go.

JUNE, JULY, AUGUST 

This is the hottest time of the year in Playa Del Carmen, especially mid-July and August. During these months the Mayan Riviera beaches fill with vacationers! 
Summer is also the rainy season however if it does rain, it tends to hit only once a day and for a very short period. Quite often you are happy it rained as it tends to cool things down a little, at least for a short while.

On a cloudless day in August the heat can be unbearable for some people. Shoes are needed because the sand can get too hot to walk on. Even walking any great distance can become a chore. Dehydration is a major factor during the summer months as well as sun-burn. At 12:00 noon you can get burned in 15 minutes without proper sun-block. 

SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER

In September and October the ocean water is hot from the summer heat. The outside temperature drops making daytime temps hot but bearable. Evenings are beautiful and you can still swim at night and be comfortable. This is also hurricane season along the Atlantic coast. Hurricanes or tropical storms can occur anytime between June and December, however the common period is September - November. It is advisable to pay close attention to weather reports during these months.
