Weather in Tulum in October?

by susu111

Hi

I'm planning a last-minute vacation (want to leave in a little over a wk), and have been trying to decide mainly between Nicaragua (Leon/Granada and Corn Islands), Panama (Panama City and San Blas Islands) and Mexico (Tulum and Merida). I was leaning toward Nicaragua initially, but am worried about traveling to a fairly remote island with limited amenities in the middle of the rainy season. I also think the Mexico trip would be the least stressful option(shortest flight, easy bus ride from Tulum to Merida). The one thing I'm not sure about is the weather. I'll be traveling in early/mid-October, and weather forecasts in all the places I'm considering indicate some rain. However, I have no idea if that means an hour or two of heavy rain during the day, rain overnight, or lots of rain during the day (which could be an issue). Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect weather-wise in Tulum in October? (I'm less concerned about the weather in Merida.)

I need to make a decision about where I'm going in the next day or so, and the weather could easily sway my decision, so any feedback would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Idea of vacation is to relax, pick the least stressful.Mexico is not so remote and you know how to get around and they have some American standards. The weather is hit or miss, remember hurricane season doesn't end till November, but as a traveler, I think you can manage the weather by having other things to do on stand-by. Very rare to rain daily in a week. Good Luck, tOMMY X

I agree with previous----if a hurricane comes thru, it could be bad, but you take your chances during this season---I have been to Jamaica many times in October (going next saturday for a week) and planning on a little rain most afternoons, but there is that chance......Same for Mexico's coast...so long as you wont be out a bunch of $$$$, I would take the chance!

Thanks! I just booked my ticket to Mexico.... hopefully the weather holds up. I'll make sure I stay at a decent hotel/cabana in case I have to spend some time indoors.

Travel Tips for Tulum

TULUM TOILETS

by Jawnuta

There is a large toilet facility at front of the ticket office.

Give the lady 30 pesos when she handle you the napkin.

Toilets are very clean, however the water to flush them has dark brown color. It looks like watery doo-doo. It is normal and does not smell.

The water to wash your hands is clear (I guess purified), and there is plenty of soap.

Most faucets in public bathrooms ( in TULUM, COBA, CHICHEN-ITZA, CANCUN AIRPORT) have sensors so you don't have to touch anything after you wash your hands.

Palm Trees are kind of Ratty

by emilienoelle

I had always envisioned palm trees as being the picture-perfect things that you see on Corona commercials, and they are like that from a distance, but up close they are pretty ratty. It makes sense when you condiser the harsh conditions that these trees must survive: little water, extreme heat, high winds. But hey, a ratty palm tree sure beats no palm tree at all!

Footwear

by CindyLou99

You might want to bring a small bad to carry your stuff for the day. Be sure that you have good shoes for walking. There is some rough terrain and a lot of steps, so you will want to be comfortable. You also might want a hat for extra protection from the sun. Sunscreen is a must. You will not want to forget your camera for all the great photo opportunities there. A bottle of water will be greatly appreciated, because of the heat combined with all the walking.

Playa del Carmen

by leffe3

Playa del Carmen off the beaten track? If you are staying in Tulum it is (normally its the other way round!). Much more developed than Tulum, with a number of bars, clubs, restaurants, it has become something of a holiday playground. As a more commercial centre, it is the best place to do any holiday shopping for those little touristy things required to take back home.

The Tulum Train: To the Ruins and back!

by wilocrek

For those of you who don't want to make the ten minutes walk from the parking lot up the road to the entrance to the ruins in the jungle heat there is a alternative. For roughly $3.00 you can purchase a round trip ticket on the Tulum train ( not really a train, but it looks like one ) to the ruins and back. However it really is a pleasant ten minutes walk so I would suggest walking but if you in a hurry or not into walking then taking the train to the ruins is the ticket!
