Cancún Scene It’s all sun, sand, and good vibes. Here flip flops and board shorts count as “dressed,” and the club beats are thumping 24/7. Swim-up bars keep the cocktails coming to the twentysomething crowd. But families can find their own paradise at one of the many resorts with kids’ clubs and gigantic pools.

Climate: Cancún is part of the region called Tierras Calientes. Here, the least rainy period runs from February to April, and the driest month is April, so it is an advisable destination for the Easter holidays, when the Norte is less likely to blow. The Gulf of Mexico in Cancun and the Riviera Maya is warm enough to swim in all year round. The rainy season runs from May to November and is a hot and sultry period. The rains are abundant especially in June, and between September and mid-November. However, the sun still shines quite often, in fact the rains generally occur in the form of downpours or thunderstorms, so they don't last long. You can go to the tierras calientes from December to February, to avoid both the heat and the rains of summer, and because in some areas the months of October and November are still very rainy. In spring, in April and May, the rains have not arrived yet, but the weather is usually hot.
