Yesterday marked the exodus of thousands of National Tourists vacationing in Cancun and the Yucatan for the summer season and marks the beginning of the low or slow season in Cancun for National and International Tourists alike.
The low season corresponds with the second half of hurricane season in the region and hotel occupancy is expected to remain low through October and even into late November of this year before picking up once again for the North American Holiday Seasons.
While this may be worrisome for a few people, in fact, Cancun is usually beautiful this time of year weather wise and far from the maddening crowds, most attractions will be easily accessible, more relaxed and services tend to be very high in quality due to the drop-off in tourists. Hotel prices generally tend to be very good in this period as well.
There will be very few lines at clubs, restaurants and attractions, prices for shopping will often be better and the specials and deals will be frequent while out on the town.
See the Islas, Mujeres and Cozumel while living on a bit of island time with less hustle and bustle. Enjoy the Eco Parks, the Maya Ruins sites without crowds and return to Cancun for dinner without fear of a line down the street.
