Weather in Mexico in June
The weather in June isn’t the greatest, it’s usually hot, humid, and wet. This doesn’t mean to say that you should avoid Mexico in June, there are still some great places to visit and just a little planning can make your trip more enjoyable.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season also runs from June to November so you may get a storm or two, but these don’t last longer than a day. While in general, we recommend that you avoid visiting during the hurricane season, it is really hit or miss as to whether you will get a storm or not.
When is Rainy season in Mexico?
The rainy season runs from May to October in Mexico so you will be visiting during the rainy season. This means you will likely see rain during your trip, but it very rarely rains all day. Just take an umbrella or a light rainproof coat and you will be fine!
Average Temperatures for Mexico in June
Mexico is huge so the average temperature will depend on where you’re visiting.
Temperatures can range between 83°F to 90°F depending on where you’re staying! It can feel slightly warmer too due to the humidity.
You can expect some rainfall and high temperatures across Mexico in June. If you are looking to avoid the heat, head towards the cities or smaller towns as it’s cooler inland.
Visiting cities like San Miguel de Allende, Valle de Guadalupe, Guadalajara, etc are a much better option during the month of June.
Why Visit Mexico in June
Honestly speaking, June often means one thing when traveling around Mexico. Rain!
With that being said, although June might not be the ideal time to visit in terms of weather, it will be less busy than the high-season months. You can take advantage of the smaller crowds and visit the top sights without the big long queues!
Just keep note that with hot, humid weather along with rain, this generally means that there will be more bugs and mosquitoes. I recommend packing some insect repellent to protect yourself.
Popular Places to Visit in Mexico in June
To help you plan the perfect Mexico trip, I will take you through the best places in June for the optimum weather for exploring the area and making the most of the activities on offer.
1. Cancun in June
Ok, so the weather isn’t the best in Cancun in June, but that doesn’t stop people from visiting.
The average temperature is around 97°F and the humidity is as high as 78% so it can get pretty uncomfortable. Make sure to wear light clothing and stay hydrated.
The best advice for Cancun in June is to plan plenty of water activities to cool off.
You will also see showers in June, but these should only last around an hour or two. However, if you visit during a tropical storm, it’s likely to rain all day.
Cancun Whale Sharks Season starts in June, and although you’ll need to book in advance as only 10 people are allowed per boat to protect the sharks, this is something you can’t miss.
If you want to see when the best time to go to Cancun is, check out our full article.

2. Mexico City in June
Mexico City or CDMX is a popular year round destination as there are so many things to do in Mexico City in every weather.
You can expect afternoon showers in June so make sure to take a waterproof jacket or umbrella if you’re exploring the city. The average temperature is around 78°F with lows dipping to 58°F.
Although it’s warmer in the day it can get a bit chillier in the evening so I’d recommend a jacket or taking some layers. For more tips, check out our 4-day Mexico City Itinerary.

3. Tulum in June
The weather in Tulum in June is less than ideal, but don’t let this stop you from visiting.
You’ll likely see rain here each afternoon but it doesn’t last for long as long as there are no tropical storms. The best thing about visiting Tulum in June is you will get more for your money in terms of accommodation and transportation and the crowds will be smaller.
Tulum has risen in popularity over the last few years, but as June is part of the low season, you can get some great deals here.
The average temperature in June is around 90°F so you might be grateful for the rain to help cool you down!
If you’re looking for the best times to go to Tulum then check out this article.
You could go for a refreshing drink at one of the beach clubs in Tulum or take a dip in the numerous Tulum cenotes, you’re bound to have a great time. If it is raining during your visit, I recommend doing a few indoor activities like this bar crawl or this Tulum Cooking Class.

4. Playa del Carmen in June
Similar to Tulum and Cancun, June isn’t a great time to visit Playa del Carmen, however this hasn’t stopped others from visiting during this month.
You can expect warmer days in Playa in June with temperatures around 90°F and falling to around 76°F in the evenings.
If you’re lucky, June is a perfect time for swimming and water activities in Playa with sea temperatures around 79°F, allowing you to spend all day splashing about if you wanted to!
However, with that being said, you should expect some rain during the month of June. Hurricane season in Mexico also starts during early June so keep this in mind when planning your trip.
Personally speaking, the Adventure in You team has gone through two hurricane seasons while living in Playa del Carmen and while the thought of it can be scary, most resorts and hotels know exactly what to do in the event of a storm.
If you’re wondering if Playa del Carmen is safe to visit during this time, check out our article for more safety tips.

5. Cabo San Lucas in June
If you’re dead set on visiting Mexico during the month of June and want to get some sun and sand time, Cabo San Lucas is a great option due to the fact that Cabo gets an amazing 300 days of sunshine a year.
The rainy season here is only for 2 months from August to September and the rest of the time is blue skies and sunshine so you can expect to have great weather for your trip in June.
The temperature in June is around 90°F so you can take advantage of this by taking a refreshing swim in the ocean or pool.

6. Isla Holbox in June
Isla Holbox in June can be described with one word – Hot! The average high temperature is around 92°F.
You can expect some showers here so bring your waterproof jacket, but the rain won’t last long given that there isn’t a tropical storm.
June is a great time to go swimming with the sea temperature around 84°F. If you can avoid visiting during this time, I recommend that you skip over the islands and head inland instead. Places like Valladolid, San Miguel de Allende, and Mexico City are much better options.

7. Cozumel in June
Known as one of Mexico’s diving hotspots, Cozumel is a place frequented by diving enthusiasts from all over the world.
Located around 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen, you can reach the beautiful island of Cozumel by ferry or plane. You can enjoy temperatures around 89°F in June with lows of around 76°F.
You will likely have showers if you travel to Cozumel in June, which may help you cool off from the heat, or you can enjoy some water activities. If you’re specifically in Cozumel for scuba diving, June is one of the best months to go!
The water temperature is around 82-83°F, giving you warm water conditions which is perfect for diving! During this month, dive boats will also be less crowded which means you can enjoy some of the best dive sites without the crowds.

8. Oaxaca in June
Oaxaca in June is very warm, the high temperature is around 85°F, perfect for visiting one of the many brilliant beaches Oaxaca has to offer.
The night temperatures dip to around 60°F so it can be a bit chilly compared to the day so you might want to bring some warmer clothes.
During the month of June, I recommend heading to Oaxaca’s beaches! Places like Puerto Escondido will be in full swing as surfers from all over the world come to enjoy its 8ft-10ft+ swells.
While in Puerto Escondido, I recommend booking a tour where you can release baby turtles! This is a very special experience that overall contributes to the conservation of these beautiful creatures.

Puerto Vallarta is one of the safest places to visit in Mexico with it welcoming all travelers (solo, couples, families, and LBTQ). A gorgeous city that has plenty to offer no matter what the weather!
You can expect hotter and more humid weather in Puerto Vallarta in June with the average temperature being up to 91°F. Much like the rest of Mexico, you can also expect afternoon showers as June is the rainy season for Puerto Vallarta.
As Puerto Vallarta is located on the Pacific coast, expect temperatures to be hot so if you do end up going, make sure that you book a place with air conditioning!
Despite the hot temperatures and rain, like most of Mexico’s coastal towns, the rain will pass quickly and you could go back to enjoying PV’s attractions.
