Next, we present the best time to travel to Isla Mujeres according to climatic factors or tourist activities:
This is the best time to travel to Isla Mujeres in climatic terms, as it is considered the best weather with little or no rain. In these months, on the island it hardly rains and the sun shines brightly, which makes it perfect for diving, snorkelling or enjoying the beaches. In addition, on these dates the influx of tourists is usually low, since you can comfortably enjoy everything that Isla Mujeres has to offer.
From these dates, spring begins on the island, which means a large influx of tourists. In these months the temperature and humidity tend to increase, so most visitors will need air conditioning at night, in addition, in April the rains tend to be more frequent.
If you want to travel during spring break, you will need to reserve your room months in advance, because it is one of the busiest times of the year. But, due to the large influx of visitors, during this time you can participate in endless activities that are organized especially in these months for spring breakers: Carnival, diving, tours, electronic music festivals, etc.
And, from April to August, the best season for sport fishing for sailfish and marlin begins.
In June the hurricane season officially begins, so the weather becomes very hot and very humid.
But, the tourists who travel during these months can enjoy cheap rates if they plan their trip in advance. This is because, being the middle season during these months, tourism tends to be slower, so you can find low prices on rooms, tours and other activities that take place on the island.
However, it is not a good time for lovers of water sports, as due to storms and hurricanes, diving becomes a bit difficult as the sand is removed under the water, which limits visibility. And, ther activities such as snorkeling or sailing trips tend to be a bit complicated due to the rain and waves.
But not everything is bad! If you are lucky, while swimming you can get to see many stingrays. And, every year at the end of June and beginning of July, the Whale Shark Festival is celebrated on the island, so if you want to swim with this majestic animal and enjoy all the artistic exhibitions, do not hesitate to visit the island in these months.
These months are the best time to go sightseeing on the island. Everything begins in August, when a great variety of cultural, musical and gastronomic events take place, in celebration of the Anniversary of the Foundation of the Island.
During these months, you can still feel the heat of summer, the humidity level is better and the season is low, so you can have the island just to yourself and enjoy every corner of it in your golf cart. But, you should be alert to the weather warnings, because in September and October there is a greater probability that a hurricane will develop in the area
However, this will not prevent you from enjoying all that the island has to offer. Since, from the end of August to the beginning of October, you will be able to enjoy a wonderful spectacle: seeing the baby turtles hatch and release them into the sea. Also, if you are lucky, you will be able to observe the last whale sharks of the season.
In November the “Nortes” season begins, where cold fronts hit the island, lowering temperatures, which helps to cool it down. During these months, little by little the number of tourists increases, so that in December another of the high seasons begins in the area and the hotels tend to fill up with tourists looking to enjoy a warm winter.
These months are perfect to enjoy the New Year and Christmas parties, dates in which the bars and nightclubs in the area are transformed into an environment that you will not want to miss.
