What’s the weather like in Cancún in November?
With an amazing location on Mexico’s stunning Yucatán Peninsula, Cancún’s one of Mexico’s best holiday destinations thanks to its incredible Caribbean Sea setting and tropical weather. If you’re going in November then you’ll have plenty of heat, lots of sun and less rain as the dry season starts.
Cancún’s tropical climate means it gets high temperatures all year round and a distinct rainy season. This is between May and October, so November’s the first month of the dry season. When it does rain it’s usually in short showers. Temperatures are also a bit cooler than the really hot summer, so it’s a great time to visit if you’re not a big fan of the heat
The average high in Cancún’s 30ºC in November, which stays nice and warm after the sun goes down just after 6pm. Don’t take up space in your suitcase with lots of heavy clothes, as things only cool to 20ºC at night. The sea temperature’s a warm 28ºC so it’s lovely for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 91mm of rain over eight days. You can expect 11 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine at a very high UV level so make sure you wear sun cream.
Things to Do
The weather’s great for relaxing on the beach in November, and Cancún’s stunning white sands are a real treat. Away from the seaside a trip to Chichen Itza’s a must. An important city in the the Mayan empire, you’ll find many temples and the mysterious Kukulcan Pyramid at the ancient site. Otherwise chill out in the sand, sip a cool cerveza at a beach bar, and wait for Cancún’s nightlife to get going.
