Is June a Good Time to Visit Mexico?

Mexico is a beautiful and diverse country that offers something for everyone year-round. Whether you are looking for culture, nature, history, or adventure, you will find it in Mexico. But is June the ideal time of year for you to visit this amazing destination?

The answer depends on what you are looking for and where you want to go. June is the start of the rainy season in most parts of Mexico, which means that you can expect some downpours and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon and evening. However, this also means that the landscapes are greener and lusher, and the temperatures are colder than in the dry season.

If you want to avoid large crowds and enjoy lower prices, June is a great time to visit Mexico. You’ll have a better chance of finding deals on the best hotels, flights, tours, and more space to explore the attractions without dealing with long lines.

But if you are looking for sunny days and clear skies, June may not be the best time to visit Mexico. Some regions, such as the Pacific Coast and the Yucatan Peninsula, can experience hurricanes and tropical storms in June, disrupting some of your plans. However, it's important to note that episodes of rain are often light, and this hurricane season is usually short.

While June is not the best time to visit some natural wonders of Mexico, such as the monarch butterfly sanctuaries or whale watching sites; it’s a great time to swim with whale sharks, as it is the peak of their migration towards Mexico.

June is a great time to visit Mexico if you are looking for a budget-friendly vacation, and you don’t mind some rain and humidity.

Mexico Weather: Rainy or Sunny Days?

Mexico is a large and diverse country, so the weather can vary widely depending on where you go. Generally speaking, June is the start of the rainy season in Mexico, but that doesn’t mean it’s always wet and gloomy. You can still enjoy plenty of sunny days and high temperatures in June, especially in coastal areas and in the south.

The average temperature in Mexico in June is around 25ºC (77ºC), but it can get much hotter in some places. For example, Cancun and Playa del Carmen have an average high temperature of 32ºC (90ºF), while Mexico City has an average high temperature of 25ºC (77ºF). The humidity can also be high in June, especially in the tropical regions, so you might sometimes feel sticky and sweaty.

In June, rainfall in Mexico is around 140 mm (5.5 inches). This also varies a lot depending on the location. Some places get more rain than others. For example, Puerto Vallarta has an average of 15 rainy days in June, while Cabo San Lucas has only one rainy day. The rain usually falls in short and heavy showers in the afternoon or evening, leaving the mornings and nights clear and pleasant.

There are around 7 hours of sunshine per day in Mexico in June, which is quite suitable for enjoying the outdoors. The days are long and bright, with sunrise around 6:30 a.m. and sunset around 8:00 p.m. The UV index is very high in June, so make sure to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to protect yourself from the sun.

Cancun, in Quintana Roo, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico, and for a good reason. It’s a city that offers everything you need for a fun and relaxing vacation: gorgeous beaches, lively nightlife, shopping malls, restaurants, and entertainment.

You can sunbathe on the soft sand or swim in the clear waters of the hotel zone, where you can find many resorts and hotels to suit your budget and preferences. Another thing you can do is venture to downtown Cancun, where you can mingle with locals and enjoy a more authentic atmosphere. 

If you want some adventure, you can take a day trip to snorkeling in the nearby islands, such as Cozumel, or explore archaeological sites.


Tulum is a town on the Caribbean coast of Mexico that has become a hotspot for travelers looking for a more laid-back and eco-friendly alternative to Cancun. This place has a bohemian vibe that attracts artists, yogis, surfers, and nature lovers.

In Tulum, there are plenty of boutique hotels or glamping sites that are located along the beach or in the jungle. You can also visit the Tulum ruins, perched on a sea cliff. 


Guanajuato is a state in central Mexico that’s famous for its colorful houses that are built on the hillsides. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site that preserves its colonial charm and history. You can find San Miguel de Allende in Guanajuato, a city famous for its baroque churches, art galleries, and festivals.

If you visit Guanajuato, you can wander its narrow streets and alleys and find hidden plazas, fountains, churches, and museums. You should also take a cable car to enjoy a panoramic view of the city from above.

This is also a great place to visit if you are a fan of art and literature; you can see the birthplace and museum of Miguel Cervantes Saavedra, the author of Don Quixote, or the house and museum of Diego Rivera.
