Best time to visit Cozumel
Cozumel enjoys a tropical savanna climate and the summer period between December and March is the peak tourist season on this gorgeous Caribbean island. The welcoming blue waters, sunshine and annual colourful Carnaval Week in February draw thousands of revellers to Cozumel every year.
If you prefer to visit when accommodation and air fares will be cheaper, visit Cozumel between the months of July and November. Summer temperatures are highest in July and August but it is bearable and the best time to go diving as underwater visibility is beautiful and crystal clear.
From September until November the island experiences its rainy months so if you go during this period you should keep an eye out for hurricane warnings. Other than that, temperatures are still warm and perfect for sightseeing or celebrating with the locals on Mexican Independence Day (In September) or the exciting Mexican Revolution Day (In November).
