Best time to go Late May or Late July?

Trying to decide on trip late May or late July. When is Cancun less crowded if ever? Will the rates be better in May or July? Any difference in weather at either time?

Thanks

Hurricane season starts in June. May would be my choice.

Yeah, you can be pretty much guaranteed of pretty good weather late May, but late July you are rolling the dice about the hurricanes. And it's cooler (not much, but a little) in late May than late July.

I agree, May would be my choice. The weather will be perfect and the difference in occupancy will be negligible.

If you like rain, hurricanes,hot temps and humidity,more crowds,higher prices, then go in July.

Great question krista.

We are going May 31 thru June 5th. I was worried it would rain the whole time, because June starts the rainy season. But everyone has reasured me the weather will be nice. I really hope so.

Went last year late July and I thought it was pretty busy. There seemed to be alot more traffic than usual. It was also very hot and humid. I believe late July is when alot of Mexican families vacation in Cancun.
