Weather Report: Mexico
With warm temperatures, beautiful beaches and opportunities for adventure and relaxation, Falcon’s new summer 2016 destination to Mexico provides all the ingredients visitors need for a good holiday. At our Riviera Maya and Yucatan Peninsula spots you can be sure the sun will be out and you can engage in your favourite outdoor pursuits, exploration or simple relaxation. Here is what the weather will be like at some of our Falcon locations.
Cancun embraces you with a warm average temperature of 28°C in June and July. With highs in this popular part of Mexico hitting 33°C in June and July, but at its hottest, the heat can climb to anywhere between 34°C and 39°C. The sun shines for a cheerful 10 hours in June and 11 in July, so you can truly make the most of the weather.
Lay back and take in the sunshine on one of Cancun’s colourfully named beaches. Turtle Beach is popular with locals and is a good place to go swimming as the water is a little deeper than other beaches around the area. If you’re bringing the kids, don’t worry, there are plenty of shallower areas they can paddle in. The water of Lobster Beach is generally tranquil, and is usually the go-to stretch of sand for families, while Blue Seagull Beach is the spot for body surfers and is a hit with the locals due to its proximity to a lot of the area’s amenities.
If you’re staying in Tulum, you’ll find that this part of Mexico is close enough to Cancun to share similar temperatures. The average high is slightly milder than Cancun at 31°C in June and July, and the average low temperature in these months is 24°C, so you certainly won’t be feeling the chill! If you’re planning to take a dip in the sea, you’ll find the waters accommodating. The average temperature of the sea in June and July is a gentle 28°C.
Here you can head out to the Tulum ruins, which stand proud above the coastline. Early morning and late afternoon are good times to visit these, since there will be fewer crowds, and the heat will be milder. You can take nice photographs that really capture the calm that surrounds the ruins.
Offering an average high temperature of 32°C in June and 33°C in July, the weather is as friendly as the town of Akumal. Situated 100 kilometres south of Cancun, the average water temperatures are 27°C and 28°C in June and July respectively.
Such beautiful temperatures allow for some truly fun activities in Akumal, particularly snorkelling and diving. You can explore the impressive underground caves, or ‘cenotes’ as they’re known in Mexico, such as Santa Cruz and Aktun Chen. If you’re feeling really adventurous you can go shark diving, and if you prefer to stay on dry land, you can zip around the town on a Segway tour.
If your thoughts have turned to Mexico as a place to experience the summer sun, you can count on this appealing country to deliver. In June 2016, you’ll be able to fly to Mexico from Dublin and experience this all for yourself with Falcon.
