First of all, WOW on the flight deal you got - that's pretty spectacular!

As for weather, I've been to this area late September/early October for the past few years. Most of the time, it's sunny and hot. If there is any rain at all, it's usually just a very brief sprinkle. If you're unlucky and a significant weather system is passing through (or even a tropical storm), you may get a day or two of consistent rain which might be very heavy at times. It would be quite unusual for the rain to last longer than about 2 or 3 days but it has been known to happen.

Short stays, such as yours, are a double-edged sword. It would be quite possible for you not to see any rain or clouds at all BUT, if you're unlucky, you could have not-so-great weather for the entire time. Of course, this far out, there's absolutely no way at all of predicting what it will be like when you get there.

My view is that a day in Mexico beats a day at the office and, since I can't control the weather anyway, there's not much point in worrying about it. However, as it is hurricane season, I do monitor the NCAA website as my trip dates approach, just in case anything significant is brewing weatherwise. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo_atl.shtml
