everyday calls for rain and thunderstorms. I've been 3 times during hurricane season and have seen a grand total of 3 hours of rain in those 3 trips. RELAX! Don't get people worked up and in a tizzy. Do your research before your trip - you booked during the rainy/hurricane season and that's why you got a good price!

Folks, please do a bit of reasonable research before causing alarm. Nothing is there.

I don't see anything like that on the weather website I'm looking at (Accuweather). I see a higher CHANCE of rain those days, but not an all-day thing and not strong winds. The thing you have to remember about dealing with weather forecasts in the tropics is that they're notoriously WRONG in the long-range (and I'm talking behind more than a day or two) this time of year because one little thing can make a big difference. When I was checking the forecast for Cancun last week for THIS week, it was showing a 60-70% chance of rain every day. Today...no rain forecast at all and the same for tomorrow. So, I'm not guaranteeing "no rain" for your trip, but I'm saying that it would be foolish to make plans to cancel based on the forecast right now.

" heavy rain,thunderstorms and strong winds gusting up to close to 40mph for 4 straight days "

sounds like the weather we deal with all the time. why would I cancel a vacation due to a forcast like this? at least I'd be on vacation and not at work . Go, enjoy some relaxation!

Both site's you have mentioned seem to me more to do with checking wind conditions for windsurfing etc. rather than just weather sites, and even then they have the temp between 27 - 30, which is a good temp.

Most sites look exactly like they do every day for the last year or so i have been checking, between 20 - 90 per cent chance it will rain (this could be for 5 minutes in the day though, doesn't say all day) and chance of thunder storms, and like many people have said, its a tropical climate so it always seems to say that.

We were there last Oct when a hurricane Paula hit near Cozumel, all we got in Cancun was a around 16hours of rain and stuck inside a hotel with all you can eat food, drink, room service, before and after we amazing weather.
