Traveling to Cancun in June: Weather, Events, and Things to Do

Traveling to Cancun in June? I’ve got you covered!

June is a great month to visit Cancun if you want to avoid big crowds. The peak season months are long past, so you can enjoy tours and excursions without tons of other people around.

The weather and humidity are starting to go up, which makes June a great time to refresh yourself and enjoy water activities.

June marks the start of the hurricane season, and you can expect a few rainy days, but do not let this scare you.

Hurricanes rarely hit Cancun, and if they do, it is much later in the hurricane season. Between rain showers, the weather in Cancun is delightful!

Except for last year, in 2022 when we had a full week of rain, there was a tropical storm coming from the Atlantic and we knew it with much notice.

How is the Weather in Cancun in June?

June is one of the first months of summer in Cancun. The summer months are generally hot and humid, with frequent rain showers.

It is the rainy season, but this does not mean it will rain every day.

Instead, when it does rain, you can expect a (sometimes sudden) downpour of rain, which passes quickly.

Within minutes of the rain stopping, the sun can come back out.

Do not let the fact that June is the rainy season scare you away, the rain is usually short-lived (if it’s not a tropical storm or a hurricane) and will not ruin your plans! 

Cancun Temperature in June

Average High and Low Temperature in June in Cancún

The weather in June is getting hot. The average high temperature is between 88 and 90 degrees. You can expect that around half of the days in the month will have days that reach 90 degrees.

The daily low temperature averages around 77 degrees, with the temperature rarely dropping below 72 degrees.

This means that you can expect hot days, with the temperature cooling off slightly in the evening and at night. 

The heat index in June can reach up to around 98 degrees at the hottest point in the day. The heat index gives ‘felt air temperature’ which combines the temperature and humidity.

This means that at the hottest points in the day in June, it will feel quite hot.

If you are sensitive to heat, plan ahead to keep yourself comfortable. June is a great time of the year to enjoy aquatic activities.

Being in the water during the day will keep you feeling refreshed.

If you plan to go visit ruins, make sure to wake up early and get there before the temperature rises too much.

You can always adopt the mid-day siesta and relax in your air-conditioned hotel room to avoid the hottest hours of the day. 

How is the sea in Cancun in June

Average Water Temperature in June in Cancún

The air temperature in Cancun in June will be hot. Thankfully, the sea temperature is perfect, and with the hot days, you will want to spend plenty of time in the water.

The average sea temperature will be right around 82 degrees for the entire month of June.

In June the water warmed up from the coolest months of February and March, but not reached its highest temperatures yet. 82 degrees is a great temperature to hop into the water for a swim, go snorkeling, or scuba diving.

If you are prone to getting cold on scuba dives or plan to dive several days in a row, you may want to use a lightweight wetsuit.

Most shops can rent you a 3 mm shorty wetsuit, and with this extra layer, you should be very comfortable on the dives!

You can expect the ocean to be calm and clear in June. You do not have to worry about the strong cold fronts, called nortes, blowing in and causing rough waves and bad visibility.

Cancun is famous for its clear water.

If you sign up for a snorkeling tour you will be amazed at how much you can see from the surface! In June you can expect great water conditions for aquatic activities with water visibility reaching up to 100ft!

Even better than the water temperature in June, are the creatures you can find swimming about.

Every summer whale sharks migrate to an area off of Cancun and Isla Mujeres.

They come to feast on a large plankton bloom, and some scientists believe it is the world’s largest congregation of whale sharks.

You can take a tour leaving from either Cancun, Isla Mujeres, or Isla Holbox to snorkel with these gentle giants from mid-May until mid-September.

For so many people it is a bucket-list experience to swim up close to these majestic beauties. 

Cenotes are another great way to get into the water and cool off in June. Cenotes are freshwater pools that connect the surface to vast underwater river systems.

After a walk in the jungle or visiting ruins, nothing feels as good as jumping into a cool cenote.

The water in the cenotes stays around 75 degrees year-round. While this is a great temperature for cooling off after a day in the sun if you are planning to scuba dive in the cenotes you will want to wear a full wetsuit to keep warm. 

Does it Rain in Cancun in June?

Average Monthly Rainfall in June in Cancún

There is always a chance of rain in Cancun. Cancun is situated between the Caribbean Sea and the jungle.

This tropical environment is prone to experiencing short-lived, but intense rain showers.

June is the beginning of the wet season, so you can expect some rainfall. June averages 7 inches of rainfall; however, only 6 out of 30 days in June are usually rainy.

What this means is that when it rains, it really rains hard!

Probability of Precipitation in June in Cancún

You will be amazed to see how the sky can change from sunny to pouring rain within a matter of minutes.

The rainfall in June is usually intense and can stop as quickly as it started. The sun can come back out within minutes, letting you get back to enjoying your vacation. 

The great news about the rain in Cancun is that it will rarely affect your vacation plans. Locals and tour operators are used to the rain and know that it will pass before long.

If you do not want to risk getting wet while on an excursion, pack a lightweight raincoat and carry it with you. Or, you can be like the locals who huddle under an awning waiting for the storm to pass. 

How is the humidity in Cancun in June?

Humidity Comfort Levels in June in Cancún
Humidity in June in Cancun ©

When it comes to Cancun, the question you want to ask is not “is it humid” but more accurately “how humid is it?”

Cancun is a tropical location, surrounded by the sea and jungle, so it is always humid. June is one of the wettest months of the year, so it should not surprise you that it is humid.

The humidity is usually around 85% and this can drive the heat index up. You will especially feel the humidity when there is a short burst of rain and the sun comes out again.

Remember to drink plenty of water in humid areas and wear lightweight clothing to stay comfortable. 

Will Cancun be Sunny in June?

As the month of June progresses, the chance of having overcast days increases. At the beginning of the month, you can expect to have more sunny days, and you will have a greater chance of having overcast days towards the end of June.

This does not mean you will not get plenty of sunshine on vacation. The average UV index in Cancun in June is 7, so you still need to take care to protect yourself from the sun.

In June you will get over 13 hours of daylight with the sun rising just after 6:00 am and setting around 7:30 pm.

This gives you plenty of daylight to enjoy excursions, and you do not want to miss the beautiful Cancun sunsets! 

Is Cancun Windy in June?

Average Wind Speed in June in Cancún

Thankfully, there is a pleasant ocean breeze that blows in Cancun all year round. In June the average wind speed will slow down a bit from around 8 miles per hour to 7 miles per hour.

In June you rarely need to worry about strong wind storms affecting your tour plans.

The “norte” season is over and it is too early in the hurricane season to worry about tropical storms (although they may happen, they are rare).

This means that the port captain will have no need to close the harbor and mess up your scuba diving, snorkeling, or excursion plans. 

Is There Seaweed in June?

There is a chance you will have some seaweed on the beach in June in Cancun. There are several different factors that influence how much seaweed washes ashore in Cancun, including tides and wind direction.

Seaweed washing ashore in Cancun is most common from May to October. The seaweed that washes onto the beaches in Cancun and the Riviera Maya is called sargassum.

It is a brown alga that usually floats on the surface of the water. In recent years the Mexican Caribbean has made the news with pictures of huge amounts of sargassum covering beaches.

Scientists believe that climate change has caused more sargassum to wash ashore due to changing ocean currents and rising water temperatures. 

Sargassum is not harmful to people, but it can get a little smelly when it dries in the sun. There are small creatures that live in the sargassum, and coming in contact with these can bother some people’s skin.

Understandably, no one wants to head out to the beach and instead of white sand and turquoise water find a lot of seaweed.

Playa Gaviota Azul

Most hotels and beach clubs work hard to keep the area free of sargassum.

If you are planning to venture out and want to find out if a beach you want to visit has a lot of sargassum, you can check the government pages at Red de Monitoreo del Sargasso de Quintana Roo.

This organization will post daily updates on the amount of seaweed on the beach. Since the amount of seaweed that washes ashore depends on the wind, you can usually find areas that do not have any seaweed.

Use the map to find a clean beach, you may even want to consider a day trip to Isla Cozumel or Isla Mujeres. 

No one can control or definitively predict how much seaweed washes ashore. But, do not let seaweed ruin your vacation. 

If there is a lot of seaweed when you arrive, use the seaweed monitoring tools and plan to visit beaches that are sargassum free.

Best Time to Visit Cancun

The month of June is a great time to visit Cancun if you want to avoid the large crowds of the high season.

The weather is heating up and on its way to reaching the average maximum temperatures that you will find in July and August.

Overall in June, the weather is great, you can expect hot and sunny days, with passing rain showers.

June is one of the wettest months, but that does not mean dark skies and rain all day. In June in Cancun when it rains, it pours.

The rain comes down hard and fast, and just as quickly as the rain begins it stops and the sun comes back out.

Between rain showers, you will be left with hot and sunny weather, ideal for spending time at the beach, doing aquatic activities, or checking out a cenote. 

June is considered the low season to travel to Cancun, which makes it a great time to go! You will not have the huge crowds that come in the winter months.

Fewer people mean that you can try to score good deals on hotels. You also do not need to worry about booking your accommodations and tours as far in advance if you are traveling in June, because things are not as likely to fill up as they would during the high season.

June is the low season in Cancun, but there are things happening there all year round. If you are looking for great live music and places to party and meet people, you will still be able to find that in June. 

The hot and humid weather in June makes it the perfect time to enjoy water activities. Whether you are an experienced scuba diver or want to try snorkeling for the first time, the hot air, warm water, and great visibility make it a true pleasure to spend your day in the ocean.

During the summer months from mid-May to mid-September whale sharks congregate off the shores of Cancun and Isla Mujeres.

It is an amazing experience to hop into the water and get to snorkel next to these gentle giants.

In addition to tours to snorkel with the whale shales, June is a great month to visit the coral reefs. You will have the chance to see marine life, such as sea turtles as well as colorful corals. 

The temperature in June is heating up, so if you want to visit the ruins be prepared to sweat a little bit.

Try to schedule a tour that will get you to the ruins early in the morning, before the hottest part of the day.

Remember to drink plenty of water and use sun protection. If possible, schedule a ruins tour that includes a visit to a cenote to help you cool off after your visit.

One of the advantages of visiting the ruins in June is that it is the low season, so you will not have to share the site with tons of other tourists.

Smaller crowds make June the best time to visit Cancun. You will have no problem finding a peaceful spot on the beach or booking the excursions you want to do.

The days are hot and humid, so plan your activities in the water, or early in the morning to avoid being in the sun in the hottest part of the day.

The Cancun weather is constantly changing. You may encounter some passing rain showers, but do not let weather forecasts scare you. The rain will be heavy and pass quickly, but it should not interfere with your plans. 

Packing List for Cancun in June

Don’t let packing for your vacation stress you out. The most important things you need to bring to Cancun in June are swimsuits, sunscreen, and a sense of adventure.

Here is a packing guide to help make sure you bring everything you need for a great vacation. 

Swimsuits and beach clothes. Think lightweight swimsuit cover-ups, board shorts, and tank tops. The summer months are perfect for days at the beach and in the water. 

Flip flops. You will want some sort of sandals that can get wet for wearing to the pool, beach, and on water excursions. 

Sneakers or hiking sandals. If you plan to visit ruins or do any jungle excursions you will want something that is not slippery and stays on your feet!

Sunglasses and a hat. Sunny days in the summer are no joke. You will want plenty of protection for your head and face. Remember to bring eco-friendly, sometimes called reef-safe sunscreen. Eco-friendly sunscreens use minerals, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide instead of the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate to protect your skin. Reef-safe sunscreen is the only sunscreen allowed while on snorkeling excursions and at the cenotes.

Bug repellent. The high humidity means that the mosquitos will be out. Protect yourself with mosquito spray, even if you are not someone who usually gets chewed up. The mosquitoes are the worst at dawn and dusk, so be extra careful then. 

Keep mosquitos away!

Water bottle. Everyone has heard that you should not drink water in Mexico; however, there is plenty to fill up your reusable water bottle and cut down on single-use plastics. Larger all-inclusive hotels often have water filtration systems, making it safe to drink their water.

Smaller hotels may have large garafones of filtered water or 20-liter jugs that you can use to refill your water bottle. Try to fill your water bottle before heading out to reduce the number of plastic water bottles you need to use.

Dry bag and waterproof phone case. Keep your phone safe with these waterproof holders. They will come in handy on excursions or by the pool.

Raincoat. It is a great idea to carry a lightweight raincoat with you. A little rain never hurts anyone, but if you want to stay dry, this is the best way. 

Beach bag and towel. Check with your hotel to see if they provide beach towels. If not, it is a good idea to bring one with you. 

Rashguard. If you plan to spend hours in the water, a rashguard is the best sun protection. Do not worry about needing to dry off and reapply sunscreen to keep your skin safe.

Travel Tip: Buy trip insurance! June is the start of hurricane season, and it is almost unheard of that a hurricane would hit this early in the season. However, tropical storms can pass by in June, or you could need to change your travel plans for personal reasons. So make sure your insurance covers for possible unexpected situations. If you don’t have your own insurance you can check out SafetyWings, which I find relatively affordable and quite comprehensive.

The other I recommend is not an insurance company but a site aggregator, Travel Insurance master which will help you find the perfect insurance for you. You fill out the form with the information about your profile and requirements and they select the insurance company that is a good fit.

Is Dive Insurance necessary?

The short answer is: yes! Although we all hope that nothing bad will ever happen to you, you never know.

I always prefer to be safe than sorry and a small investment today can save you tons of dollars tomorrow.

Hyperbaric chambers and hospitalization, in general, are outrageously expensive in Mexico!

Dive Assure is one of the top insurance companies for diving and we cannot recommend them enough. I am sure you have heard of them as they are one of the most popular.
