October weather

Would you chance going to Cancun in October? I'm very nervous about the hurricanes and rain.

1. Re: October weather

We've been there several times in Oct - and had the close call in 2005 with Wilma - scheduled to arrive the day it made landfall in Cancun/Playa - luckily, NW cancelled the flight the night before. Since then, most larger carriers offer "hurricane" insurance, so you can cancel without penalty (if you've booked a pkg) even if there's a hint of a storm. Since then, we've decided to stick with carriers that fly a regular schedule to Cancun this time of year-as charters don't have the same flexibility to get there to rescue, should a hurricane come. The weather is usually nice (a shower or two) and the rates are hard to beat.
