Cancun weather in June – what to expect

In terms of tourist activity, June is one of the quietest months in Cancun. Nevertheless, the nightlife and party scene are still going on with youngsters keeping up most of the pace in Cancun’s tourist activities.

Inland activities and exploration of the ruins and jungle are a bit difficult because of the overcast weather and higher heat index, but cenotes and Cancun beaches are still as amazing as ever.

Even though June is one of the rainier months, it clears up quickly after a downpour so you won’t have to cancel any plans for the day.
