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 82F degrees with average lows around 73F – with these low temperatures being experienced mostly around sunrise.
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.
Visitors who come to Cancun in February have three opportunities to see traditional Mexican culture.
The Candlemas is held during the beginning of the month and is a continuation of January’s Epiphany celebration.
Constitution Day also occurs in February. There are many patriotic speeches and ceremonies to commemorate the day.
Also, Dia de la Bandera, or Flag Day, is celebrated quite festively with Mexican flag vendors filling up the streets days before.
