HERE ARE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING THE BEST TIMES TO VISIT TULUM BASED ON YOUR TRAVEL STYLE:
- Those who prefer to travel in the off season, but don’t like super hot weather will find the best time to visit Tulum is between October and early December, to take advantage of the sea breezes and good weather, while avoiding most of the rainy season and the hotter summer temperatures. This is also a great time to enjoy uncrowded beaches, lower season hotel rates, and interesting activities like Day of the Dead Ceremonies and the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival
- If you like crowds and having fun with many travelers, book one of the Tulum Hotels between mid-December and April. This is considered peak season in Tulum and the entire Riviera Maya. Enjoy the ruins, Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and shop for a variety of souvenirs. Don’t forget the renowned spa treatments and pampering at Tulum Hotels.
- Booking a Tulum Hotel during the “rainy season,” which is roughly from May through September, will afford you the lowest hotel rates of the year. Visitors during this time get to enjoy super hot temperatures with sporadic bursts of cooling rain. Mexico’s Independence Day is in September, when locals take to the streets to shout their allegiance to their country in the famous “Grito” at midnight on September 16.
- Booking a Tulum Hotel: You should consider booking Tulum Hotels via email. Advance booking is recommended if you prefer to travel during the peak season of mid December to April.
