    We have heard reason to avoid different months or times of months, so wondering if some pros have input. We are sure on months and times are great for given reason, just looking for opinions. Reasons could be bad weather, low crowds, to many single dudes.. and so on..

    December january too much cold for me.
    March: spring breakers

    May to nov: hurricane season so i make sure to have insurance if I go.
    July & August way too hot
    Plus of what I saw yere threw the years; august & march seems to be the less popular month as well.

    Plus I freakin hate mosquito bad !
    Sept to march im way to damm busy at work to leave.
    If I leave some costumer will wait for us at the gate And would kill us.

    This is a good reason to avoid January...Yikes! Not warm enough for us. Not much you can do about the weather other than avoid it.

    We never do Dec, Jan, or Feb.

    There was a similar post several weeks back on when to go and we did a month by month breakdown of pros/cons of each month

    So our opinion going month by month...
    January
    Too cold for us. Pool water chilly. Less day light hours. For those wanting to escape winter at home maybe it works. For us we like it warm to hot while on vacation. Plus it is less busy than feb so if we HAD to go during the winter we would prefer feb.
    February
    Same cold issue as jan. But busier toward the end of the month week 8
    March
    Getting better weather wise but too many single guys due to spring break factor for our tastes
    April
    Now we get into the sweet spot for us. Resort is busy. Weather at home still chilly. But weather in Cancun warm enough for our liking. Still prime season so less deals typically.
    May
    Same advantages as April weather wise at home and in Cancun. Also busy and you start non peak so better deals.
    June
    Nicer weather at home so not as ideal a time for us as we like to start enjoying the good weather on the home front plus all sorts of activities with the conclusion of the kids school year. Of course weather gets even hotter in Cancun which we like. And we have met several June junkies at other times of the year and good people.
    July
    Hot. Too hot for some. Not for us. Not as busy.
    August
    Hot hot. We usually go to Desire as they have a music fest in August that draws a good party crowd. Again resort not as busy.
    September
    Seems like for several years there were complaints about singles this month too. I never understood why. And haven’t been ourselves so just hear say and didn’t see any complaints this year. Weather still nice as it starts to cool in the north. Not busy.
    October
    Weather still great while getting chilly where we live. Love early October as a bunch from here started going then bc they couldn’t around Halloween due to kids. And hence octoberbreast was born. This isn’t before the clocks fall back so sun stays strong late at the pool. Of course Halloween is a very popular time too!
    November
    We visited in early November this year and liked it because of several takeover groups amping up the party. But it was starting to get chilly. Sun went down earlier and pool cleared out earlier.
    December
    Too cold for us. Hear there is a good group week 1 and of course it will be busy around nye but wow the prices then are crazy also. Between those times one of the slowest times of the year.

    Think too about your own weather- We did January 2x and the transition from negative temps to warm days was brutal.

    We have travelled in Jan, Feb, March, April and May. Our prime time is April and May. I pretty much refuse to go if I need to take a sweater. I do NOT want to cover up at any time lol... I like my sassy wear and the way hubby looks at me in it! I love seeing all the sassified ladies walking around struttin their stuff! Would be a shame to wear a sweater! ALSO, the sun stays up longer as well which is a total bonus!
    xoxo

    we have tried most all months ...but we have come to pretty hard decision that we will only go between April - October because we want it to be hot ..all day and all night. the point is to be sexy and show skin...and nothing ruins that faster than weather that isn't hot (there is nothing sexy about sweaters and goosebumps).....also, the later sunset in summer is important to us as well.

    I would never go to Cancun in a month we "might" need a hoodie. lol

    April-Oct is our sweet spot, with April/May being choice months for weather.

    Stacia & I've been to TTR in the following months: February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October and November.

    So... that leaves out December and January. I hear that there are some crazy good party people doing outlandish shenanigans at TTR during this period, but it's way too cold for the likes of us thin-blooded Texas types. If it's not 80F or higher during the day, Stacia's cold and not having a good time, i.e. not naked, which in turn means I'm not having a good time.

    Bottom line: avoid the months when you can't go to TTR!

    I think you will have fun no matter what month you want to go and there will be others as well because its a great place... but I feel the weather makes a difference so I would say stay away from the winter months.

    Wife speaking...another major reason we love TTR during the winter months is because we tend to catch all the canadians during this time. If you haven't partied with a Canadian then you are really missing out!
