Cancun Weather in February
More Weather Info
Cancun weather in February marks the time of year where temperatures start to rise after the very brief winter. Average high temperatures during February are a pleasant 84 degrees with average lows around 67F - with these low temperatures being experienced mostly around sunrise.
Of the 28 days of February an average of 21 days will deliver temperatures in excess of 80 degrees, although we will have to wait a further month before we experience our first 90 plus day.
Cancun is still at risk from those north fronts that travel down from the North American continent and make for cool temperatures but their frequency reduces compared to in December and January.
February, somewhat surprisingly, is the third driest month of the year in Cancun with just 2.2 inches of rain falling over an average of 4 rainy days. Those 4 rainy days are unlikely to occur consecutively so there's next to no chance of your whole vacation being wiped out by rain.
The temperature of your hotel pool at this time of year can be a little cold, in fact you'll experience higher water temperatures in the Ocean so it's great time of year to explore Cancun's water sports activities.
Humidity remains at its year long constant of around 85% maximum and 74% minimum and wind speeds rarely exceed 10mph. For sure, February is likely to be much more pleasant that it is back home.
February in Cancun
Cancun in February is normally a busy month, Canadians still make up the bulk of tourists at this time of year and as February draws to a close some Canadian universities have their Spring Break and the first Cancun Spring Break tourists of the year hit Cancun. Cancun hotel prices in February are often at their peak and stay that way until Mid April when prices reduce.
Because February is a busy time with hotel occupancy often reaching 90% this means that some tours and activities may be full if not booked beforehand. Particularly popular tours that have limited capacity and fill quickly include Cancun Dolphin Swims and Isla Mujeres Catamaran tours. Make sure you book ahead for these to avoid disappointment.
