Best Times to Visit Cozumel

The best time to visit Cozumel is from May to July. The island enjoys daytime temperatures around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime temperatures in the 70s. Winters are slightly cooler, with temperatures ranging between the upper 60s and the lower 80s, so we recommend packing layers. Summer and early fall mark the rainy season, and hurricanes have been known to wreak havoc on the island.


This peak season is naturally the most expensive time to visit, with tourists setting their sights on Cozumel's snow-free climate. Prices during Christmas and Easter spike even higher than usual. But the weather is dryer, and events like Carnaval might make the pricey hotel rates worth it.
Key Events:

  • Fiesta of the Virgin of Guadalupe (December)
  • Carnaval (February or March)
  • Spring Break (March-April)

This short summer season is a sweet spot for visiting Cozumel: You'll avoid the hurricane season and score a great hotel deal along the main thoroughfare in San Miguel. Plus, droves of sea turtles make their nests on the island in the summer, so this time of year is perfect for nature enthusiasts.
Key Events:

  • El Cedral Fair (May)
  • Boat Rodeo and Fishing Tournament (May)
  • Festival of San Pedro and San Pablo (June)

Daytime highs in the 90s and the constant threat of rain deter many prospective Cozumel visitors, meaning that you're likely to find excellent deals on accommodations. But while rates can be cheap, be sure to keep an eye on the hurricane warnings before heading out.
