Acapulco is a tropical city in every sense of the word. With a climate that rarely gets below 75 degrees on its most frigid days in the depths of winter its heat index can really knock you out in the summertime.

Acapulco has a latitude of 16°45’N putting it right in the heart of the Tropic of Cancer. Many don’t realize it, but Acapulco is about as far south as much of Guatemala and even farther south than Jamaica.

During the high season running from December to April, the days are hot, but tolerable, and the nights are warm.

The summer months are characterized by swelteringly hot, humid days and slightly less hot, humid nights. Until the rainy season, there typically is no rain at all. The Sierra Madre Mountains that ring Acapulco Bay provide some refuge during the hot summer months – the higher up you are, the better the breeze and the more reasonable the temperature. You can really feel the difference.

However, what really saves the day is the rainy season, which starts in May and lasts until October. Powerful storms blow in quickly, typically from the southeast and just as quickly they’re gone, but not before creating some fantastic lightening shows on the sea’s horizon, especially at night.

The cloudy days go a long way to make the temperature more bearable during the summer months.

September and October especially are typically the rainiest months were light rain that can go on for days mingle with powerful storms.
