Low Season in Tulum, Mexico
While Tulum has become a popular tourist destination, there are still months of the year less busy than others. Visitors to Tulum hotels will find Tulum’s low season to be from May to about mid-December, with the slowest month to be September.
Some people worry about hurricanes during this season, and while it is possible, it certainly isn’t common. Buying trip insurance is an economically sound decision for those traveling during the rainy season; even with this expense, traveling at this time of the year is still less costly than traveling during the holiday and high seasons.
In addition to lower rates, sparsely populated beaches and less-crowded tourist attractions are the hallmarks of low season travel. If you prefer shorter lines, uncrowded streets, and a peaceful, relaxing vacation, traveling to Tulum Mexico, in September and October might be perfect for you.
While technically considered the rainy season, constant, sustained rain is not very common; short bursts of cooling tropical rain interspersed with the daily hot sunshine is more likely. Average daily temperatures at this time of the year are in the 85-88 degrees Fahrenheit range, with some highs in the 90s. Tourists who take the small risk of traveling during low season can be rewarded with low airfare, many restaurant and shopping specials, and some of the lowest hotel rates they’ll find all year.
