Rainy season begins June 1st and ends October 31st. However the months with more rainfall are narrowed to September and October.
During these months it can rain all night with sunny days. However, when there is a tropical storm in the area it can also rain during the day.
As these months are usually very hot, the rain is often a refreshing change to cool off the temperature.
Also, the more it rains the less the risk of Hurricane formation.

For the past four years, the coasts of the Caribbean have been hit by the arrival of seaweed, an environmental problem that has been affecting the beaches of many countries. This usually happens more during the summer months.
Our hotel has a full team of people who collect the seaweed early in the morning and we are equipped with carts that remove it from the beach. Some days we manage to have the beach ready early on the morning; other days, depending on the current, the seaweed just keeps coming in.
On such days, we encourage our guests to take the opportunity to visit the area, there are so many sights to see in our beautiful paradise. Swim in cenotes, visit archaeological sites, grab a bike and explore Tulum, visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, take a boat trip and see dolphins in their habitat, travel to Holbox and swim with the sea’s gentle giants, whale sharks. Just ask our front desk team – they have an endless list of things for you to try. All concierge teams along the coast have a network where they share news of clean beaches every morning. We have it covered!
If you want to stay in the hotel and enjoy a day of relax, you can enjoy our beautiful swimming pool, or enjoy drinks in your very own beachfront private refreshing tub.
Please check our social media channels – all photos on Instagram are posted on the day they are taken, so you will know how the beach looks. In case we do not post on a specific day and you want real time information, please email us and we will let you know how the beach looks, although seaweed moves constantly.
We are right in the middle of the beach hotel strip. Tulum, from a laid back beach destination only in the last few years has become very popular worldwide as a fun place to be and to be seen. New restaurants, beach clubs and bars have been opening so music and sounds are carried by the wind.
While we at The Beach Tulum have a no music, no party policy, many places in Tulum don’t. Weekends in general as well as New year’s to mid-January are a period of parties in Tulum, so you should consider visiting in other months in case you want to experience complete silence.
