Best time to visit Cancun runs from December through early March. Winter usually gets crowded, but it also boasts the near-perfect weather, so don't miss a chance to sunbathe and get lost in the Mayan Jungles. Late March is the party time as spring breakers take over the city. May–June is the time to spot sea turtles nesting on shore and see golden stingrays and whale sharks offshore. Summers in Cancun are usually hot and humid, but you are more likely to find great deals. By the way, June to August are months to taste seasonal delicacies like Chapulines and Cactus ice-cream. If you plan your journey from September to November, you can be easily caught flat-footed by the storms as fall is the hurricane season. However, during this time, you have an opportunity celebrate Equinox at Chichén Itzá or Day of the Dead as well as see baby turtles and enjoy exotic fresh fruits.
