Even the best forecasts couldn't tell you yet. This is the time of year we always go ourselves. Typically it's sunny to party cloudy with light winds.

Expect highst be 85-90 with lows 70. Rain can show up this time of year and hang around for a couple days. However we go at this time because over the years the weather has been perfect then.

Best to check weather info

My favourite site


End of May/June begins the start of the rainy season

You should be fine without a coverup

That is the start of the rainy season but generally in Mexico it only rains for a little while in the afternoon.

We regularly go end of May and it can, occasionally get quite chilly at night. Last year we had four days of torrential rain, non stop (not the norm though). I would say always go prepared with some kind of long sleeved cover for evenings. Especially if you intend to dine in one of the outdoor restaurants. Better to have it and not need it, than not have it at all.

Our next trip will be in May.

The END of May.

Our last trip was in April.... Weather was just absolute perfection!

I did some research, and I wanted to travel earlier this year, but we were unable to.

Since you are traveling in early May, you should have some very nice weather.

I went on one of the web-sites... I think wunderground (excellent), and compared the history calendar for April and May... It was really very obvious how, by late May, the rains started to increase.

You should have some GREAT weather!

But, like others have said. Can't second guess mother nature.

We've gone mid-May every year since 2008 and the weather has always been great! If it rains, it's never been more than 20-30 minutes, and even that was rare. I noticed sometimes it seemed to rain late night/early morning, because when I woke up I could tell it had rained some. It's warm and humid. :)
