The Mexican island of Cozumel is as well known for its beaches as it is for its weather. It also is a hugely popular cruise destination.

One of the best months to go there is March. Cozumel weather in March is usually sunny and warm with temperatures in the upper 80s Fahrenheit and low risk rain.

Western Caribbean cruises to places such as Cozumel and the Cayman Islands are popular during the late winter and early spring. They tend to have slightly higher temperatures than the rest of the Caribbean. They also are in the middle of a dry season.

Those same destinations are less popular later in the year because they often get quite hot during the summer. Average high temperatures often exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The rainy season beginning in June brings a much higher risk of rain.


Count on Cozumel temperatures to be nearly ideal in March with average highs reaching 88 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, according to historical data from Mexico's National Water Commission

Nighttime is quite a bit cooler with average lows hovering around 69 degrees. That means long pants might be wise for any late shopping, dining or club hopping.

In fact, the spread between average highs and lows is wider than most months and most destinations in the Caribbean.

That's important because the cooler nights will make seawater temperatures cooler in the mornings.

Sunbathers, swimmers and anyone wanting to try watersports may find seawater more comfortable in the mid to late afternoon.


The news about rain gets even better. March historically brings the least amount of rain throughout the entire year to Cozumel, averaging only a little more than one inch.

This is another reason why the western Caribbean is popular for cruise visits during the spring.

It is important to know the average of a little more than one inch is based on 30 years of data. So the actual total may be quite a bit more or even less than an inch in any one year.

Should I Visit Cozumel in March?

Cozumel weather in March is ideal for a visit because of its combination of warm but not extreme temperatures and especially because of its low average rainfall.

It is one of the two best months of the year to visit, with the other one being April. In April, temperatures are slightly warmer and rainfall only slightly higher.
