Yucatan - weather in late October

Hi there,

I know there's been a lot of questions about the weather in Mexico, but I find different answers everywhere. I plan to travel to Cancun on 18 of October, then rent a car and go to road trip on Yucatan until 2 of November.

It's been said it is rain season in October but only quick showers (I went last year to Dominican Republic on exactly the same "shower period" but it rained almost every day and all day) :) That's why I don't want to go tru the same again :)

Can anyone really tell me what to expect?

Is there hot enough to go swimming and is it good weather to explore or it can happen that It will rain all my holiday? :)

Thank you for honest answers! :)

I have been there twice in late October. The ocean is warm enough to swim. The reason your answers are all over the place is because the weather varies. One year I stayed 12 days no rain Next year rained four days in a row

I was there October 30th for 4 days and the weather was beautiful and you could go swimming. That was 2 years ago.

Weather is very unpredictable these days

What one person's experience was last year or the past few may not mean anything

On the average, October is drier than August-September

Pay attention to the Hurricane weather sites , not the regular weather reporting sites
