The humidity levels during these months is also quite high, but then drops around May time when the wet season begins (May – October).

Getting Around

By bus: Buses are the most comfortable and cost-effective way to get around. You can even take your pick of travel class – why not go VIP with first class reclining seats and a television as well as drinks and snacks.

By train: For a special trip, hop on Mexico’s only train service, the El Chepe. This will take you on a tour around the magnificent Copper Canyon (Barranca Del Combre) - it’s even bigger and deeper than Arizona’s Grand Canyon.

By hot-air baloon: Go for a ride on one of the hot-air balloon flights, perfect for a romantic sunset treat or an adventurous day out with the gang.


Day of the Dead:While some like to call it the Mexican Halloween, it’s actually a 3,000 year-old religious ritual held (31 October - 02 November) in honour of celebrating life and mocking death. Fantastical parades, sugar skulls and mystical altars make up an unforgettably atmospheric treat for the kids.

Spring Break concerts: From Tiësto and Paul Van Dyk to Snoop Dogg and Flo Rida, Cancún will treat you to performances by the biggest music names in the world (mid-February – mid-April). Look out for Inception Music Festival - 30 days and nights of sheer partying and supreme electronic dance music DJs.
